  • You have the impression that this is a simple local church, still tending to the needs of locals, which is nice for the community and the religious orders that can seem to lack relevance these days.

  • It is an austere 13th century Franciscan church, well preserved and characterized by a sparse and essential architecture with a beautiful wooden trussed ceiling. It contains the remains of fresco cycles from the life of St. Francis made by Sienese artists of the Signorelli school. Definitely worth a visit as part of an excursion to the quaint old town of Pienza.
