Create an itinerary including Basilica di Santa Chiara
See the original Cross of San Damiano, which is duplicated all over town, at Basilica di Santa Chiara. This church is dedicated to and contains the remains of Saint Clare of Assisi, a founder of the Order of Poor Ladies (now the Order of Saint Clare). Admire the simple pink and white stone facade. The basilica is quite plain compared to other Italian churches, in keeping with Saint Clare’s humble lifestyle. Descend into the crypt and see a statue of Saint Clare, a display of her relics, and art depicting her life.

  • This is tucked away but distinctive due to large boulders supporting the church on the outside. Inside lovely art work dating back to the 13 century. The body of St Chiara is resting there. Nearby...

  • Basilica di Santa Chiara is always a place for silence and prayers. The sunset is always spectacular.
  • Exterior is pretty bland, but surroundings are spectacular: great panoramic view of Umbrian planes. Altar and crypt underneath are definitely worth visiting
