Built in the 17th century, the Church of San Francesco is also known as the Convento dei Cappuccini e Chiesa di San Francesco and the Capuchin Friars Monastery, and it contains many marvelous works of art, including the "Crucifixion"by Anthony van Dyck.
Recent visitors said the view and peaceful atmosphere on the monastery's grounds were worth the strenuous hike to reach it. Others highlighted the harmonious singing and serene atmosphere that emanated from the church, calling it truly beautiful.
