Church of St. Francis
The Church of St. Francis was built in the 13th century in the Gothic style. It is located near the Church of Our Lady of Health. It is interesting that the priests in the church are available for confession every day. Next to the church is the male Franciscan monastery of St. Francis, which was rebuilt along with the church. The monastery now houses several monks and novices. On the other door of the church the bust of the lion of St. Mark is carved. The lion holds a closed book, which means that at that time Venice was at war. This sculpture also dates from the 13th century. The church has no windows on the northern and southern side, because of the monastery and bell tower. The bell tower was built 300 years later and was completed in the 18th century. Inside the church a pulpit from the 18th century is located, and on the floor are scattered tombstones.
