Church of San Francesco - Giano dell’Umbria
The monumental complex of San Francesco is located in the center of Giano dell’Umbria, close to the city walls at the entrance to the castle.
Built in the second half of the 13th century, it was then the subject of numerous renovations, which however did not completely compromise the interpretation of the primitive church.
Initially the plan followed exactly the directives expressed by the Franciscan rule with a single nave, trussed roof and extreme decorative simplicity. This rigor was altered in the seventeenth century, when the perimeter walls were raised and the roof rebuilt, which was then hidden by a brick vault in 1909.
The exterior, in rose-colored ashlars with a gabled roof, has a raised facade with respect to the original and decorated with a buffered oculus and a portal with a recess.
