Oratorio dei Pellegrini, Assisi

4.5
#15 of 16 in Historic Sites in Assisi
Savor a moment of peace and stillness at Oratorio dei Pellegrini, a tiny chapel featuring beautiful 15th-century frescoes. Paintings cover the ceiling, altar wall, side walls, and entrance wall, all depicting religious scenes from the stories of St. Anthony Abbot and St. James. While some of the artists remain unknown, we do know Matteo da Gualdo and Pierantonio Mezzastris were among the painters who contributed. In this off-the-radar church, you can view the frescoes more closely than similar works in more popular locations.

    The visit is free, the room is small, but completely painted, so really magnificent. Attentions to -12 and 16-19 8.30 hours. Too bad you can't take pictures. I understand the sacred places, but here might be allowed. Still beautiful!

    Not to be missed, a gem of a chapel with beautiful frescos and works of art to be seen. If you go to Assisi don't miss.

    I walked at night in a deserted, while the sisters who Assisi in custody there were Eucharistic adoration. From an artistic point of view is a gem: vivid colors of exceptional frescos surround you as you enter. Care and cleaning are distinctive. I might just a little note on the liturgical furniture recently, not very balanced in relation to the structure. From a religious point of view, a place of silence and recollection, where to experience moments of prayer and meditation.

  • A small space with outstanding art. Although the space is small, the fresco decorations are a wonderful, coherent set. Spend a few minutes in peace and quiet to contemplate some truly spectacular art.
  • Magic corner main street
