We couldn't enter inside the church because of a wedding celebration. Probably this was one of the reason we really appreciated the church and the Square in front of it. It was a hot sunny day and everything was shining. Beautiful

Lovely old church dedicated to St Francis of Assisi and situated on a busy square in Ostuni. An impressive façade it is simple on the inside but due to its location has many visitors. Well worth popping in to look.
