‪13th century church with an unadorned facade and some frescoes inside but most are badly eroded.‬
יוני 2019
‪This simple gothic-style church was built by the Franciscan monks in the second half of the 13th century and is located about 100 metres away from the Duomo along the Corso Il Rossellino.

The largely unadorned sandstone facade has some travertine trimmings around the architrave of the single portal. Above the portal is a semi-circular tympanum but whatever was inside this has been long missing. There is a single oculus above the tympanum.

Internally there is a single nave with timber roof trusses. Apparently the walls were once covered with 14th century frescoes depicting events in the life of St Francis but, apart from some remaining frescoes in the apse, these have largely disappeared and there are only a few remnants remaining on the side walls

The interior was restored over a four year period ending in 2002 and this resulted in the altar, the ambo, the cross, the crucifix and the seat being replaced with new pieces by the Sienese sculptor Massimo Lippi.

On your left as you enter is a nativity scene that dates from the late 20th century.

Not really a must see but if you are in this small town it would not take long to have a quick look.‬

‪Simple local church, still tending to the needs of locals.‬

‪You have the impression that this is a simple local church, still tending to the needs of locals, which is nice for the community and the religious orders that can seem to lack relevance these days.‬

‪Both inside and out it is very austere. It does contain fragments of 14th century frescos depicting St. Francis's life. It's worth a visit and it's free.‬

‪Simple and humble‬
זוגות • ספט׳ 2018
‪The simple Gothic style church in the main historic street of the city was built in the 13th century by Franciscans. The exterior was never completed, and the interior hosted many 14th century frescoes, from which only a few survived. It is a simple and humble religious place, worth the attention.‬

‪This historic church has the simplicity of the times and certainly a must see on your list of things to see in Pienza, right after the pecorino cheese:-)‬

‪Musical interlude at this humble but atmospheric church‬
זוגות • אוג׳ 2017
‪Visited Pienza in August, showing up at the Palazzo Piccolomini on a Monday to find out it was closed, but the silver lining was that as we walked away from the Palazzo up the Corso il Rosselino we instead discovered the church of San Francesco. There was a concert underway as we walked in, with a violinist playing a sonata accompanied by a pianist, so there was a crowd in attendance. Great musical ambiance for the visit to this humble church.‬

‪It's not big in francescan style of minimalism, but it breathes.
Hopefully it will be more restaured to look even better, because there are great frescas on the walls.
And there is a really wonderful statue of Madonna! The best I have ever seen: so caring, so sad, so understanding, so merciful...‬

‪This church creates a powerful atmosphere. It doesn't display riches but from the travertine altar to the fragments of frescoes showing the monastic life of St Francis it is simply beautiful. ‬

‪Minimal church but‬
יולי 2016
‪It is a not-so-rich church, really medieval feeling. All of that is in accordance with the place and the rest of town in a good melting of historic heritages.‬
