Via della Repubblica 15 - 06024 Gubbio
The church of San Francesco was built in the mid-13th century and expanded in the early 1700s.
The church has a Romanesque-Gothic facade of white limestone from Monte Cucco. It is the only architectural element still visible of the medieval origin. In the 17th  and 18th centuries there were renovation works and expansion of the church. The façade is characterized by a portal with embrasure distinguished by fillets of decorated columns. At the base of the columns there are jambs decorated with bas-reliefs.
On the bas-reliefs there are animal's shapes related to the Romanesque figurative culture. Above is the rose window, with slender columns softened by foliage and other decorative motifs carved in bas-relief on the capitals.
