Basilica di Santa Chiara, Assisi

4.7
#3 of 519 in Things to do in Province of Perugia
Religious Site Church
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.

  • I walked to the Basilica of Saint Clare from the Basilica of San Francesco, with a comfortable walk of 10/15 min. The square has a beautiful fountain and beautiful landscaping. Looking at the front on the left there is a button from which fresh water fountain drink. Instead on the right, going down a short staircase, there is a toilet for a fee (€0.50). Inside it is very exciting and engaging visit the crypt with the remains of the Saint and a room with objects and clothes appartentuti to clear. Also very beautiful explanatory panels with the stages of the life of Saint Clare. To visit absolutely!
