CLOISTER OF ST. FRANCIS

The monastery's origin dates back to the first half of the XVth century. The cloister's architecture presents crossed arches in tufo on two sides of the portico, expressing the style of the late 1300s and substituted on the other two sides by round arches on octagonal pilasters. Various elements of pillage are present as in three corner columns reutilized functionally after being taken from pagan temples.
