Although I can understand where they are coming from, I must say that I can't agree with those reviewers who say that this is a stark or plain church. In my view this is a rather lovely example of a 13th century church, and it...More

Just off the car park this church is almost as old as St. Francis himself. Though it needs some restoration its worth a visit and a respite from the summer sun. Great photo op with Francis statue outside (esp. for the kids).

A trip to Gubbio is a trip back into time. We walked through the town, from the base of the village where there are remains of an early auditorium, through the church, and then up to the gardens built by a local "bigwig" long ago...More

Though not a highlight, this church is absolutely worth a visit. Outside you'll find a statue of St. Francis and the tamed wolf. Inside the church there are some damaged frescoes. The exterior of the church, with its beautiful white stones, is really worth a...More

A medieval Roman Catholic church built in gothic style. It was built in 1256 and decoration completed in 1291. The bell tower was constructed in the 14th century. It has a central nave and two lateral ones and octagonal pillars support the vault. You can...More
