Full description
You will start your visit from the lower floor by entering the tomb of Saint Francis and then you will keep exploring the church in the altar area where the frescoes about the life of Jesus are located. See the friary cloister. The upper church at the end will make you know the life of Saint Francis through the famous cycle of paintings decorating the church’s side walls.

The Basilica of Saint Francis is a bilevel 13th century building which preserves the tomb of Saint Francis of Assisi, one of the most beloved saints in the world. This grandiose gorgeously embellished church also preserves frescoes by Cimabue, Giotto, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti and other well-known medieval painters of Italy.

Indeed, it is one of the most focal points of both art and spirituality. This church is a powerful place for believers and art lovers alike.
