It is surprising how some places apparently small gather so much information and surprises about our past.

Conveniently located adjacent to the Basilica (Il Santo), the oratory is a small chapel decorated with very interesting frescoes in the style of Giotto (probably by his students).

Its beside the Basilica of St Antonio , so while you are there if it is open you should take a look . It is richly decorated with some good paintings and an interesting little building with a rich history all about which you can read about when you are there.

The Oratorio di San Giorgio cannot compete with the Scrovegni Chapel, but has its own charm and frescos in excellent condition about, but not only, Saint George. If you visit Saint Anthony Basilica do invest an extra 30 - 45 minutes to visit the Oratorio and the Scolleta del Santo next door (same entrance ticket). You won't be disappointed.
