Time Out Says

A little-visited campo, with an imposing church and two extraordinary cloisters.

San Francesco may be off the beaten track, but the long trek over to the down-at-heel area beyond the gasworks is worth it. The campo features an imposing church and two extraordinary cloisters. Tuscan architect Jacopo Sansovino opted for a deliberately simple style to match the monastic rule of its inhabitants. The façade (1568-72) was a later addition by Andrea Palladio; it is the first example of his system of superimposed temple fronts.
