The small, lovely Church of San Francesco d’Assisi sits at the edge of a charming piazza.

The octagonal-shaped church is a peaceful place to sit for a while, admiring the artwork that adorns its walls.

Set in the outskirts of the city, but still an easy walk from the main piazza, the Torre Cacace dates from 1873, and was built as the funeral monument for Carlo Cacace.  Today, unfortunately, it is in a state of abandonment.

Like most Italian cities, Crispiano has its public park area, Villa Comunale “Giovanni Falcone.”

Inside of the park, there is a monument to those who lost their lives in Afghanistan.
