Church of San Francesco - Carrara

The complex of San Francesco, constituted by a church and a convent, is an important cultural place that shows the artistic level of the city during the dominion of the Cybo-Malaspina, between the 17th and the 18th century. The church was built between 1623 and the 1662 by willing of Carlo I Cybo-Malaspina. On the facade, there are the statues of San Francesco and San Bernardino, in two niches, that enrich the baroque architecture. Inside there a statue of the Immacolata dated to the 18th century and a relief with the Madonna and Sant'Antonio with the Child. There are seven altars, rich in valuable marbles and decorative elements; some have endured various restorations and mutilations. The high altar, under which are kept the relics of San Costanzo, has rich marbles and an elegant tabernacle, decorated with eight columns in red marble.
