A small convent was annexed and given to the order of the Spanish Barefoot Franciscans. Restored in 1839-40, it was known as “alla Polveriera” for the vicinity in the sixteenth century of a gun powder factory. On its simple facade there is a portal with two lateral niches, on top of which stands the statue of San Bonaventura dating back to the 18th century. The interior has a single nave and on the sides of the main altar are two small chapels with smaller altars on the walls. In the church are kept the bodies of the blessed Bonaventura and of San Leonardo from Porto Maurizio.
