If these walls could talk...

The hotel is erected within the walls of the former church of the Franciscan Monastery. The first S. Francesco Vecchio monastery was built in the 13th century by the order of the Friars Minor, on the tip of Saint François, in the west of the town.
It was destroyed in 1555 during the city siege, events which then led to the construction of a second convent in the place known as "agnelle".
The size of the church gives an idea of the area previously covered by the entire complex.
The second S Francesco Nuovo monastery had 11 monks when it was closed in 1792, after the French Revolution. On the 17th February 1814, 229 priests and laymen (mainly from the papal states) were locked up on the premises on the orders of Napoleon 1st because they had refused to swear an oath of allegiance and to accept the Civil Constitution of the Clergy.

They were freed two months later after the abdication of the Emperor.
The monastery gradually fell into disrepair until the second half of the 20th century when the church was converted to a fabulous hotel.
