  • The ancient Church of San Francesco is immediately striking the gaze of tourists for its beautiful Romanesque-Gothic façade. If you can visit the 15th century cloister you can enjoy a slice of quiet spirituality. See also the Chapter House.

  • The church dedicated to the patron saint of Italy dates back to 1300. The façade, in the same style as the Cathedral, overlooks the square of the same name and is characterized by an alternation of two colours bands of limestone and serpentine. The curiosity is that the Church of San Francesco was almost entirely built in stone and brick is the first public building of Lawn to be made with this technique.

  • Situated beside a large square which houses over to the Church an obelisk in honor of Giuseppe Garibaldi and the curious dolphin fountain of 17th-century Florentine architect Ferdinando Tacca. San Francesco is a church very beloved by Pratesi somewhat less known by tourists, although it is worth visiting. He seems to have taken the place of an old church, smaller already exists since the 13th century. Retrofit future, transformed the Romanesque and Gothic Romanesque hybrid trim as sometimes happened with the restoration and modernization. Striking for two-colour façade, with bands, typical reason of Tuscany, In this case we also known as serpentine marble stone alberese and green lawn. The Interior was heavily rebuilt at the dawn of the twentieth century and lost its Renaissance character in favor of a kind of "neo-medieval" imitation, but nevertheless still interesting works, like a polychrome wooden crucifix from the 14th century, dramatic expressiveness, donated by the merchant Francesco Datini who wanted to be buried in the Church. Is one of the first Franciscan church buildings. If you have time please visit the cloister.

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

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

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