The highlight of this Museum are the frescoes depicting the life of St Francis of Assisi in the Apse of the Church. The museum also has an old wine cellar where the monks would store their wine. Very peaceful and well work a visit

If you like Giotto you will adore Benozzo Gozzoli detailed paintings. Perspective, architecture and fashion of his age are like photos. His perfect technique brings you back in centuries to feel exactly the emotions analphabet pilgrims felt looking at the history of Saint Francis on...More
