  San Francesco
by croisbeauty

The church of San Francis dates to the 13th century but the building was redone in the 15th century under the direction of Biagio Rossetti. Rossetti was inspired by Tuscan Renaissance style. As the most of the Franciscan churches, it has very simple facade but is huge in proportions. The interior is frescoed by copies of works by Cosme Tura, Dosso Dossi and Garofalo, the originals are preserved in the Art Gallery.
