The Church of San Sebastiano stands almost at the end of the Percorso del Principe, not far from Mantegna's House and the Palace of San Sebastiano, which is home to the City Museum. This unique construction, which harnesses a beautiful perspective view of one of the city's streets, is one of the fruits of the intellectual genius of Leon Battista Alberti. It is the result of a collaboration between the celebrated architect and his prestigious Mantuan client, Ludovico Gonzaga.
