Before visiting Basil of St.Francesco di Assisi be sure to visit the Basil di Santa Maria degli Angeli. Interest outside, beautiful inside. Impressive organs, frescoes on the ceiling, but special feelings causes small chapel of St.Francesco which is the church in the church.

A peaceful, old church where services are held daily and offer a place for more quiet refelction. The cross where it is said that God appeared to St Francis is in one of the knaves.
