  • Despite the sign indicated the opening. The door was closed with at least 30 minutes early. While we have seen a group of twenty people going from Church, an unhelpful man at our sight without flinching she closed the door in my face. From the outside the Church looks majestic and well maintained. The Interior we can not know.

  • The Church of S. Francesco della Pace belongs to the Guild of Masons, Stonecutters and Congener Arts. This little temple represents an essential stage in the Festa dei Ceri ritualities ( here the election of the Captains takes place and the statuettes of saint Ubaldo, Giorgio and Antonio, placed on the top of the Ceri , are kept). The church was built on the cave where, according to tradition, the tamed wolf lived and it took its name ( S. Francis of Peace) when in 1584 the stone on which St. Francis prayed after the pact of peace with the wolf was taken here and became the altar stone. In the crypt it is possible to see a sarcophagus which, according to tradition, is from the tomb of the wolf.
  • Outstanding fresco cycle by Ottaviano Nelli amongst some other great works of art.
  • The hotel has an impressive façade overlooking the square
