Basilica di Santa Chiara, Assisi
(4.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
See the original Cross of San Damiano, which is duplicated all over town, at Basilica di Santa Chiara. This church is dedicated to and contains the remains of Saint Clare of Assisi, a founder of the Order of Poor Ladies (now the Order of Saint Clare). Admire the simple pink and white stone facade. The basilica is quite plain compared to other Italian churches, in keeping with Saint Clare’s humble lifestyle. Descend into the crypt and see a statue of Saint Clare, a display of her relics, and art depicting her life. Using our world travel planner, Assisi attractions like Basilica di Santa Chiara can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Place to be visited every time. History. A lot of peace and prayer. Well inside. Always recommend.

  • Needless to say that the Church should be visited. Moreover, the visit to Assisi also forces visiting sacred places for the believers, in the case of the wonders of the city.

  • the Church is much simpler than the Basilica San Francisco and brings every tenderness and candor of Santa Clara. São Damião's crucifix on the altar is the highlight!

  • Great place to visit for some history on St. Francis and St. Clare. The original San Damiano cross is here.
  • Beautiful! On a piazza overlooking Umbria.
  • Very powerful and historical place. Spent hours in the plaza.
  • Less important than Francisco basilica but so much important if you have to understand Assise
  • Beautiful!
