San Francesco (St Francis Church)

This was begun at the end of the 13C and has a high facade striped with green marble which crowns a triangular front added at the end of the 15C. Inside, much restored, the capitulary room (or Migliorati chapel) has frescoes by Niccolò di Pietro Gerini, depicting the life of St Matthew.
