St Francis's Church

In front of the church there is a small square, formerly used as a cemetery. The construction of the church building reaches back to the 14th century, whereas the Baroque renovation in the 18th and 19th centuries brought the church its present appearance. St. Francis's Church is known for a small Renaissance shrine by Vittore Carpaccio, a beautiful pulpit, several altars and paintings by Venetian artists from the 17th and 18th centuries. Under the church, there are several tombs, one of which also belongs to the Tartini family.
