The St. Francis Church of Alatri was built in the second half of the XIII century in Gothic style and the facade has a portal with pointed arches and a rose window with radial columns. The building and the attached convent were made by a community of Franciscan monks. The convent is now an exhibition hall and in the gap between the walls was found an interesting fresco depicting a Christ Pantocrator (Christ in Majesty) at the center of a maze.
The church has one nave and the interior is in the Baroque style. It houses a famous ‘Descent from the Cross’ of the seventeenth century Neapolitan school, some more seventeenth-century paintings and a cape dating back to the thirteenth century, which according to tradition is the cloak of St. Francis that the saint gave during his stay in Alatri 1222.
