Church of Sant’Elisabetta di Vecciano - Montefalco (PG)
Vecciano is a tiny settlement located just below Montefalco, but it hides a small jewel, a tiny church with a splendid fresco.
The actual dedication is to Sant’Elisabetta, but it is now much better known as Madonna di Vecciano.
It was born as a newsstand in the 16th century, in the following a small church was built to protect it.
On the back wall, by Francesco Melanzio, Madonna and Child between two musician angels; in the intrados the saints Paul, Peter, Francis and Sebastian, on the vault Agnus Dei.
Now it is no longer officiated.
Nearby, on the road to San Rocco, is the source of San Francesco which, according to tradition, the saint made it gush in 1215 when he founded the convent at Santa Maria della Selvetta.
