Located just opposite Palazzo Bocci

Another medieval church as so many are in this part of Italy. It houses a beautiful crucifix by Giotto and the mummified body of Andrea Caccioli, one of St. Francis' disciples,

Good example of Franciscan religious architecture
May 2019 • Couples
This church was first built in the 11th century and then later in the 13th century, when Andrea Caccioli, one of the first disciples of St. Francis whose mummified body lies in the left transept of the church, became the custodian of the monastery, it became a permanent home. After the 1997 earthquake, the church was closed for 10 years, but was then restored and reopened. Spello felt the earthquake in 2016, but this church was fortunately unaffected. Spello is a lovely town and should not be missed.

Franciscan religious architecture
Apr 2018 • Couples
From the information board out the front of the church we learned that this church was built in the first half of the eleventh century and was an example of Francisan architecture. The interior is rather colourful in comparison to Church of San Lorenzo a short walk away, here the ceiling is painted in bright colours and there are remnants of medieval frescoes on the walls. The church has suffered a lot of damage over the years (earthquakes) but it is pleasing to see that history been well preserved.

That Spello should have such a collection of world-class art is a marvel. Better lighting would certainly Improve the opportunity to see the amazing detail.

Like the church next door, this one contains lovely works by Pinturicchio. The fresco by Donno Donni, in which Mary tells Joseph she is pregnant, is also stunning. The brother who maintains the church is sweet and chatty.

Fra Paolo is a wonderful host

Fra Paolo is so welcoming and proud of his church. He is always present in the church, cleaning, turning on the lights and the music. It's so nice to see someone so dedicated to his commitment.

Charming little church
Sep 2012 • Friends
There are so many memorable churches in Italy that little churches like this one often get overlooked. It is worth stopping in for it's history and relationship to St. Francis.
