This former Franciscan convent was built in 1614 on the initiative of Taddeo Verri, who also endowed it with seven hectares of woods. The architectural complex today is in a state of 'ruin'. The location and size of this 17th century building would make it ideal for conversion into a multifunctional cultural complex, or into tourist accommodation, or a centre for the care of the elderly, or a 'campus' for training and education.
The convent is built on a square-shaped footprint, and originally had 23 rooms.
The cloister is surrounded by a portico decorated with a series of frescoes depicting episodes from the life of St Francis
The complex develops over two levels for a total of about 1,500 sqm, with all architectural and religious elements in ruinous condition.
For further information about the convent and its potential uses, historical documentation, floor plans and project proposals for the construction of a multifunctional hospitality complex are available.
The Ex Convent of San Francesco is for sale at € 500,000. -
