Description

The Basilica of Saint Francis is a bi-level 13th-century building which preserves the tomb of Saint Francis of Assisi, one of the most beloved saints in the world. This grandiose gorgeously embellished church preserves frescoes by Cimabue, Giotto, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti, and other well-known medieval Italian painters.

You will start your visit from the lower floor by entering the tomb of St. Francis and then you will keep exploring the church in the altar area, where the frescoes about the life of Jesus are located.

You will then see the friary cloister. The upper church at the end will introduce to you the life St. Francis through the famous cycle of paintings decorating the church’s side walls. Indeed, it is one of the focal points of both art and spirituality. This church is a powerful place for believers and art lovers alike.
