Corciano's Churches

The St. Francis Museum Church is tied to the Franciscan memory. Its construction, according to tradition, dates from 1223, when it was built to celebrate the passage of the saint of Assisi returning from Isola Maggiore on Lake Trasimeno. More probably the church was built at the end of the XIII century.

The Parish Church of Santa Maria Assunta goes up to the XIII century, even if its structure has been modified and renewed during the time. To its inside is possible to visdit two masterpieces among the maximum exponents that the history of art remembers. The first one is the painting of the "Assumption of the Virgin", work of the 1513 of the Perugino, where the Madonna is drawn in the gesture to protect the community of Corciano from the adversities.

The second one is the gonfalone of Benedict Bonfigli, dated 1472, where the artist has represented with great effectiveness and precision the castle of Corciano.
