Erected in the 13th and expanded the 14th and 15th centuries, San Francesco features a neo-Gothic facade and frescoes by Jacopo Zucchi, Pietro Lorenzetti, and Giuseppe Nicola Nasini.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the enchantingly impressive Duomo di Siena, this beautiful building is just as remarkable and probably easier to enjoy as it's free and almost empty. It's definitely worth the 5-minute diversion away from the busy centre.
