Monastery and Church of St. Francis

The Monastery and Church of St. Francis were built on the site of an early Christian church, where the tomb and church of the Christian martyr St. Felicio once had been. The Little Brothers of St. Francis settled in the monastery in the 13th century. In the one-nave church there are four side altars decorated with altar pales of the Immaculate Virgin, St. Joseph, St. Anthony and the Holy Cross. By the main altar, which was built in the early 20th century, the earthly remains of St. Felicio are located. The church houses the sarcophagus depicting the “Crossing of the Red Sea”, one of the most beautiful parts of religious art from the Roman period. The Franciscan Monastery surrounds the old cloister from the 13th century with a covered porch and unique Gothic columns. In the middle there is an abandoned well. There are about 3,000 works in the monastery library.
