  Fašade of the Franciscan Church
by mikey_e

The Franciscan Church is hard to miss, partly because it is in Preseren Square, the centre of Ljubljana, and partly because it is such a beautiful building that you will immediately be impressed by it. The Franciscan Church of the Annunciation has a main altar designed by the Italian Francesco Robba, six side altars and, get this, a glass coffin with the remains of a saint. Perhaps not the best place to come right after breakfast, you should still stop in before 3PM when it closes to visitors. The outside is the best part to photograph, as it provides a very picturesque backdrop for the street activity of Preseren Sq.
