  • First public building of brick Romanesque-Gothic façade Meadow; In addition to artworks, are worth seeing the Regnadori Chapel and the great cloister.

  • a piece of history of Prato ... with a cloister, where memories of child chasing the echo of friars who recall the silence ... how many years have passed? Time stood still here ...

  • A short distance from the Emperor's Castle and the beautiful church of Santa Maria delle Carceri, the Church of San Francesco looks externally in Romanesque and Gothic with beautiful marble-colored blocks at the bottom and bricks in the upper one, a beautiful portal surmounted by ARC (also in two colours) and a large rose window in the same shades. Internally is very bare, you could say "Franciscan"; featuring some of the chapels of the nobility pratesi, with their beautiful "arms"; in front of the main altar is buried one of the most important figures in the history of Prato: what was called "the merchant of Prato" Francesco Datini, who donated the large wooden crucifix of fourteenth century laid on the altar; also notable is the sepulchral monument of Geminiano Inghirami (Prato's fundamental character). Prato is rich in churches, that of St. Francis is one of the most interesting

  • To visit, it would be nice also the cloister but it is not freely accessible

  • Beautiful church with a beautiful cloister which, however, is not very accessible. The square is often a place of food markets and trinkets

  • Beautiful church overlooking the square. Features of discrete artworks, but we're not talking about masterpieces never even comparing them to other nearby churches.
