Beautiful old church near the bottom of town. First stop on our visit to Gubbio and with free entry it’s certainly worth checking out

This is a beautiful place. Art work is gorgeous. It closes during the middle of the day so time your visit. It was peaceful just to sit and take it all in.

The church was built by 1256 . The site belonged to Giacomello Spadalunga who clothed St Francis after an encounter with a robber. It is a Gothic style church with frescoes. Under the altar are the remains of a blessed nun Franceschina who died in 1255.

Interesting history of Gubbio is told here. One of the main destinations of this town. You should visit.

Although I can understand where they are coming from, I must say that I can't agree with those reviewers who say that this is a stark or plain church. In my view this is a rather lovely example of a 13th century church, and it is unusual in Gubbio as it is the only church in town (and there are many!) with a nave and two aisles. Its major historical significance is that it was built immediately after the death of St Francis on land owned by the Gubbian family who gave him sanctuary when he fled Assisi. There are some magnificent works of art to enjoy here but for me, pride of place must go to the 14th and 15th century frescoes that were revealed during renovation work between 1926 and 1938. Fabulous!…
