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.

Oratorio dei Pellegrini reviews
This chapel doesn't have a high profile and there is no indication outside of how beautiful a building it is. It's only the size of a large living room but is stunningly decorated.

Greate and peacefull place tot sleep and pray! No price asked, but it's recomended to give some money for accomodation. They will use them for cling and paying bills
A real candy. The oratory was originally the church of the pilgrims' hostel which housed pilgrims on the road to Rome who wanted to pay homage to the remains of Francis.
