Tuscany Sights

San Francesco

Updated 12/04/2013

Fodor's Review

In the mid-13th century, this Gothic-style church was built on the site of Etruscan and Roman baths. It is decorated with frescoes that date from 1382, a 17th-century crucifix by Giuseppe Piamontini of Florence, and houses a Relic of the Santa Croce, a vestige of the True Cross apparently given to Brother Elia when he served as an envoy for Federico II in Constantinople. The church's rather beautiful organ was unfortunately badly damaged during WWII.
