The monastery and church of St. Francis are located on the slope of the hill between the Forum and Ka?tel. The Franciscan came to Pula as early as 13th century, and their large monastery church was completed in 1314. It is a monumental single-nave preaching church built of very finely dressed square stone. In the rear it has three square apse with Gothic triumphal arches. The front of the church is distingiushed with a Gothic rose and a monumantal portal richly decorated with twisted columns and relief tendrils that climb from styled amphorae at the foot.
