We went late in the afternoon. We had the privilege of hearing the nuns sing some of their evening prayers. We had evening Mass. The tomb of St Clare is utterly beautiful. Praying in front of her was so special and scared.

A bit plainer than the other churches of Assisi, but lots of interest especially in crypt - tomb and relics of St Clare

This church is beautiful. I would really recommend that you go down to the crypt on display are clothes that were worn by St Francis and St Chiara with information detailed written descriptions in both Italian and English.

Not as flash as Saint Francis basilica but does have the remains of Saint Chiara underground as well as some original tunics worn by Saint Francis and some locks of Chiaras hair plus other items of interest

Another not-to-miss spiritual gem in Assisi. We were exploring the city on foot and came upon this gorgeous church. It was at sunset, so we could only admire its beauty from outside. There is a beautiful square out front and lots of flowers, along with...More
