  • This church was built by the first successor of Saint Francis, that is, brother Elias, and the first Franciscan church in the world, after the one built by the same brother in Assisi.

Above the main altar, accessible for a visit, one of the greatest relics of the Holy Cross, from Constantinople, which was reported by brother Elias.

  • Beautiful church, it has an air of decadence dates from the wear of sandstone. The inside has beautiful and important paintings and also ancient frescoes. There is a good atmosphere.
