Eglise de Caprignone

Typologie :
  • Religion et Spiritualite
Localité: Caprignone - Gubbio


From the ruins of a church dating back to the end of the 11th century and a small pagan temple the Franciscans build a small convent and their temple.
Today the church remains, while from the few traces left of the monastery we can only guess the dimensions and the architectonic style. The internal part of the oratory is a unique environment, a longitudinal development and a rafter roof. Caprignone is in perfect line with the Franciscan stylish canons, the absence of decorations, the space delimitated by nude superficies, the use of local materials are revealing the total adhesion of the building to the proper ideals of essentiality of the Order, as well as to the traditional techniques of construction of the place.
