San Francisco church is neoclassical and consists of three naves with a crossing, which preserves Gothic vaults from the time of its foundation, and a square chancel. It was originally a Gothic construction but such elements were masked during the Baroque period reforms. The initial construction stage ended during the last third of the fifteenth century. A series of works were conducted during the first half of the seventeenth century and the church was practically rebuilt in the mid-eighteenth century. The portal that connects the church to Plaza de España belongs to the seventeenth century.

The eighteenth-century main altarpiece is considered one of the most important of Écijan Baroque. It consists of large estipites and features sculptures of Franciscan saints, such as Saint Francis de Assis, Saint Anthony of Padua, and a sculpture of Saint Dominic de Guzmán.
