San Francesco, Siena

4.2
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.

  • Simplicity is its highest quality, but has stained glass windows, as shown in the pictures, wonderful. Rare churches present this type of characteristic.

  • Beautiful church that is close to the University of Siena, inside there are paddles of various artists but are poorly lit, then some beautiful chapels to admire behind the altar. Typical medieval Gothic style church.

  • Worth the visit just to see the Eucharistic Miracle. The architecture of the space is also marvelous though but it pales in comparison to the miracle that lies within.
  • Nice, humble and impressive church.
