Ex Convento di San Francesco

Its construction on the ruins of an old castle seems to date back to the early 14th century, which is confirmed by donations from wealthy local families.  Standing to the right of the church of San Lorenzo, it is built mainly from travertine, and that assured its stability through the following centuries. The Franciscans who lived there must have had a special relationship with the Tolomei family, whose coat of arms is reproduced all over the place. After Napoleon suppressed religious orders in 1808, the structure fell into decadence and underwent great modifications by its inhabitants.
