Tempio San Fortunato
The temple of St. Fortunato rises in Piazza Umberto I, at the top of a beautiful staircase, over the remains of a complex built before the year 1000.
The building was built by the Order of Minor Franciscans, upon a design by a still unknown architect. The works started in 1292 and continued until the second half of 1400: the church remains incomplete today. The huge Gothic bell tower, of 1460, rises on the side of the church; the ancient convent is nearby, and it also has a beautiful cloister. The façade, in pure Italian Gothic style, started in 1415 and is incomplete: its architect was Giovanni di Santuccio who died in 1458, leaving the building as we see it today.
