The hotel is built within the walls of a former church of the Franciscan Convent.
The first convent, S. Francesco Vecchio, was built in the 13th century by the Friars Minor on the point of St. Francis, to the west of the city. It was destroyed in 1555 during the siege of the city. Thanks to important bequest, the construction of the second convent began at the place called "Agnelle".
The dimensions of the church give you an idea of the area formerly occupied by the property. This second convent named S. Francesco Nuovo was still home to 11 monks when it was closed in 1792, after the French Revolution.
On February 17, 1814, 229 priests and lay people (mostly from the Papal States) were locked up in this place by order of Napoleon I because they had refused to take the oath of fidelity and submission to the civil constitution of the clergy. They were released two months later, after the Emperor abdicated.
The convent then gradually fell into ruin until the second half of the 20th century when the church was transformed into a remarkable hostelry.
