Create an itinerary including San Francesco
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. The church is rather cavernous, with large stained glass windows adding to the feeling of airiness.

  • A perfect place to connect with God. Praying in front of the miraculous eucharist gives you the feeling of God being with you at that particular moment. Please visit this church when you are in Siena.
  • A very nice church on the outskirts of Siena. It’s a very nice walk from the city center to here. The church is very famous for the stories of the Saint Francesco. The church is free to visit and if you like you can get a guided tour.
