The late-Romanesque and early Gothic building of the Saint Francis church was completed in the mid-15th century. The bell tower was added in the 16th century, decorated with majolica tiles. The church. Its simple facade is just the prelude to its richly decorated interior, with many precious frescoes made by some true masters like Bartolomeo di Tommaso.

Historical Research of the Sanctuary of San Franceco in Terni  In the past it wanted to give the architectural project to Brother Filippo da Campello to the similarity of the original structure with those of St. Chiara and St. Francesco of Assisi. In reality it is a common correspondence to numerous examples of Umbrian Franciscan.  Dates back to the fourteenth century the construction of the Paradisi chapel, home of the beautiful frescoes by Bartolomeo di Tommaso from Foligno.Il first building dates from the second half of the thirteenth century, precisely in 1265, when the oratory donated by Bishop Rainerio to St. Francis in San Cassiano. After the death of the saint of Assisi, of design of Filippo da Campello was transformed into a convent. In 1437 it was modified with three naves and had added the chapel of San Bernardino; was later rebuilt in the seventeenth century and renovated after the earthquake of 1703. Of the original structure remains the exterior now where in the middle part has a Gothic portal surmounted by a large oculus. Of artistic merit even the decorations in polychrome pottery of the ornate bell tower with mullioned windows and Gothic arches and twisted four lights [1], by Angelo da Orvieto (1345) and the frescoes in the Paradisi Chapel (1) by Bartolomeo di Tommaso da Foligno from the XV century. In 1927 the San Francisco parish was entrusted to the Salesians. During the Second World War it was heavily damaged by Allied bombing. In 2005 he was proclaimed the sanctuary.

This church is typical of the era. It is a pleasant stop in a walking tour of Terni. Like all medieval cities, parking may not be available.
