  FRESCOS IN ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI CHURCH
by matcrazy1
 
 

There were world's unique vaults covered by frescos from the beginning of 16th century inside the Church of St. Francis of Assisi (Bernardinai). They were painted on the walls of the church as well.

Well, they didn't look amazing as they were partly (mostly) destroyed. They depicted scenes from Holy Bible, showed portraits of saints, coat of arms and include floral ornaments.
