Tempio di San Francesco is more impressive from outside than from inside. It is a huge building in the skyline, of course big inside aswell, but very simple and calm. Saint Francis might have likesd the humble inside better?

This church is located in a spectacular position. From the front of it there is an amazing sea view of the whole Gaeta Gulf, from Gaeta to Scauri and up to Napoli Gulf. The church been renovated recently and is very well presented.

This church was not as ornate as those in Rome and Vatican, but beautiful none the less. The trip on foot to visit is a little tough, but well worth it.

This temple is being repaired and now it shows its former glory. The views are fantastic and you can park very close to it. It is worth the visit, always remember to leave a tip to help them with the maintenance.

Due to siesta we had very short time to enjoy the athmosphere of the church but we liked the huge gothic space. The story of this church is very interesting, don't miss to visit if your are in Gaeta. But bear in mind siesta time!!!...More

Never been there, unfortunately the sight is totally abandoned and need urgent restoration works, but the facade is a stunning example of early gothic style perched on the city and with a breathtaking view on the gulf. I would have been able to enter it,...More

Nice view of the harbor. A lot of water damage to the interior and the steps and terrace in front of the church are falling apart. I felt compelled to leave a generous donation to help with the upkeep.

I remember what this used to be like; there have been times I've been there & you couldn't even draw near, because they had the whole place blocked off. They've now restored the exterior front, as well as the central parts of the interior, and...More
