San Francesco's Church of Locarno

Consecrated in 1230, this church was greatly changed in the 16C. Inside, the nave has two bas-côtés separated by five twin columns in granite from the Ascona region. Note the wooden vault above the nave. A large fresco of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary decorates the upper part of the choir.
