The monastery of S. Francesco is situated in the outskirts of Gallese, a small town in the Northen Side of Lazio, in the district of Viterbo. The area is well known for its history and for the large number of Etruscan findings. Gallese is placed in an enchanting site: at the boundary between Tuscany and Umbria. The town is influenced by the climate and the landscape of the two regions. Besides, it is well connected with Rome by motorway (12 km distant) and also by railway. The Terni-Civitavecchia freeway is just few km. far. The monastery of S. Francesco was the first to be built by the "Cappuccini" congregation at the beginning of the 16th Century.
