  • An ancient church, built 800 years ago, really impressive. There is an courtyard from where the architecture can be admired. Also interesting are the graves of some of the first scholars of Bologna.  more »

  • This historically important 13th century Franciscan church looks quite spectacular spectaucal from the outside, but also merits a visit. The buriel chapels on the grounds make the church stand out.
  • Rather simple but still beautiful church. Nice stained glass windows.
  • A place of worship
  • Beautiful.
  • The Basilica is lovely and the homonymous piazza San Francesco is one of the nicest in Bologna! Despite the last posts of street furniture have definitely slipped in my opinion, because I think are misplaced and away from any aesthetic Canon, especially if dropped in the context of the place. In any case a place to visit.
