We stayed right next to this church which looks quite insignificant from the outside. Inside it’s quite large and importantly has links with Francis of Assisi. It also has a case containing splinters from the cross of Christ.

Very interesting on the inside concerning saint Francis, as I viewed his tunic I thought how different from the wealthy modern religious leaders of today. Very nice and worth a stop as you head up to the top of the hill/city

This simple 13C church is a peaceful stop on the way up to Santa Margherita. It has some artifacts, a piece of the cross as well as San Francesco's tunic. Well worth a stop.

This simple church is lovely - very simple for a church of its importance and seemingly tucked into a corner of the hill. Here you will find a piece of the Holy Cross -- the one on which Jesus was crucified - which is now...More

A historic church... Very simple inside in the center of Cortona. It also contains a tunic and other artifacts attribute to St. Francis of Assissi.
