Franciscan Church Ljubljana

Umesh1874
Description
Franciscan Church (Frančiškanska cerkev). Built between 1646 and 1660 (the belltowers following later), it replaced an older church on the same site. The layout takes the form of an early-Baroque basilica with one nave and two rows ol lateral chapels. The Baroque main altar was executed by the sculptor Francesco Robba. Much of the original frescos were ruined by the cracks in the ceiling caused by the Ljubljana earthquake in 1895. The new frescos were painted by the Slovene impressionist painter Matej Sternen. #baroque #Church #Franciscan #Ljubljana
