  • Close to the big parking lot and a little historic complex, decentralized is a very beautiful church and dear to devotees of Saint Francis.

  • This Gothic church was built in honour of St Francis chiesona a few years after his death, at the place where the Saint Francis of Assisi lived in Gubbio hosted by a wealthy family. Well preserved outside, keep inside the original architectural layout though unfortunately very edited by remakes that have occurred at various times. Survive some remnants of ancient frescoes in the apse right and a 15th-century painter Ottaviano Nelli of Gubbio discreetly cycle preserved in the left.

  • The memory left by St. Francis to the inhabitants of Gubbio was so important that they wanted to build and dedicate one of the most beautiful churches in the city. The noble family of the Spadalonga, friends, donated part of their property for the construction of this church. The same, except all buildings built with a single nave, era eugubine features three naves supported by tall columns. The structure is impressive and the apses and the octagonal Bell Tower built in 1400. Inside you can admire interesting frescoes, particularly in the left apse where there is a cycle of value depicting scenes from the life of the Madonna by Ottaviano Nelli. Here we also find the image of our Lady of mercy, much venerated by eugubini. In the Central apse frescoes of 200 attributed to a follower of the Maestro di San Francesco. Do not forget the cloister where we can observe a beautiful portal with Lancet Windows and a fresco of the ' 300 depicting the transportation of casa di Loreto made by angels, perhaps the oldest representation of this theme. Recommended visit.
