St. Francis Church was built in the 13th century in Gothic style by friars belonging to the order of "Frati minori conventuali", and was completely restored in 1828 according to the wishes of Duke Francesco IV d'Este.
The simple front facade is in terracotta and has a fine stone portal, surmounted by a fresco depicting the Saint. Above it, a large rose window.
