  • Its construction dates back to 1280 and 1307, its brick façade, (unfinished), over a marble canopy, noteworthy, of Lombard Gothic architecture. The three-nave Interior has a Latin cross, rich in frescoes, in the apse, eighteenth century frescoes, by Sebastiano Galeotti. The Church houses the remains of the poet Ada Negri.

  • The Church is a square with a little bit of green and a large front space left empty no car and old time cobblestone floored that already prepares the view and understanding of her beauty: understated, a Romanesque watchable well inside and out a beautiful rose and two beautiful and particular Gothic mullioned Windows already are open to the sky. This remains the memory of poet lodigiana Ada Negri, readable on a small marble in the garden of the square. Content appearance and apparently "stopped" the façade enriched by a small porch already Gothic, is then very enriched and supported within the beauty of well restored frescoes and valuable paintings in the side chapels. Actually the whole thing deserves a thorough examination, to do it calmly, better on a sunny day to enjoy the double Lancet Windows open on blue.

  • The thirteenth-century Church of San Francesco was built on a pre-existing sacred building and is a fine example of Lombard Romanesque, although without reaching the stylistic beauty of the exquisite Cathedral City. The brick façade displays a beautiful marble rose window and two unusual lateral mullioned Windows with pointed arches, while the Interior has 3 naves and boasts numerous chapels and interesting works, like some frescoes (14th-18th centuries). The latter pay attention to the Madonna and child with Saints Nicholas and Francis, but valuable are also marble facings and frescoed ceilings. pity that some are in obvious degradation ... I note that the building is part of the Italian national monuments, while the opening hours are somewhat flexible "... in our case on Saturday afternoon at 17 the Church was still closed ...
