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.

  • A tiny building but rich in 15th century frescoes, just down from the basilica. well worth a visit to see wonderful paintings in a more manageable surrounding 
  • Not large, but pretty & accessible (both mentally & physically). You meet it on the left as you approach the great Basilica of St Francis from the main square.

  • 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.
