  • This Basilica was erected in honor of the Holy Francis after he was declared the weekend 2 years after his death in 1228. Here he lies buried. The Basilica is beautifully adorned with religious paintings, altars and crucifixes on 2 floors. Relics from St. Francis is set out in all its simplicity. The energy rays of contemplation and silence.

  • Upon arriving at the subway station buy the bus ticket to climb to the upper town or if you want to go first in the Basilica Our Lady of the angels which is very close to the subway. GET THERE EARLY!!! To take the bus get off in the period will see in front of the entrance to the city. It's beautiful, Medieval, beautiful.

  • Magnificent and cavernous structure. The vast upper basilica pulls you this way and that to stare at remarkable frescoes. The lower basilica feels like it's compressed around you, but with art treasures that match those above. The purported burial site of St. Francis is in an a relatively spartan surrounding (also on the lower level), but with fitting dignity. The basilica grounds stand high above the plain below, providing a sweeping view of the countryside.
  • Even though it was put up in a relatively short time to celebrate the life of a saint who emphasized the importance of poverty, there's nothing that can compare to the wealth of frescoes that date from the dawn of an artistic awakening in Europe. The restorations from the earthquake of 1997 are amazingly well done. Magnificent structure; even better wall decorations. Expect to spend at least a couple of hours to get the full benefits from the experience. Reading up ahead of time will only help.
  • This basilica of Saint Francis has very beautiful and stunning stained glass. In the basement of the chapel is where Saint Francis' remains are interred.
  • Priceless art, holy dwelling, in the footsteps of a great saint. Great gift shop.
  • This is fairly different from Florence or Siena. This is really a place where people come to pray, so touristic activities are limited inside the basilica (no cameras). The late middle ages frescoes are quite impressive, and the museum is very interesting, even if a bit short on information.
