Erected in the 13th and expanded the 14th and 15th centuries, San Francesco features a neo-Gothic facade and frescoes by Jacopo Zucchi, Pietro Lorenzetti, and Giuseppe Nicola Nasini. The church is rather cavernous, with large stained glass windows adding to the feeling of airiness.

  • A perfect place to connect with God. Praying in front of the miraculous eucharist gives you the feeling of God being with you at that particular moment. Please visit this church when you are in Siena.
  • The simplicity of Francis. The serenity of his soul in stark beauty. No fuss or elaboration, just the peace of the saint. Truly an experience you should not miss.
