This Basilica has a beautiful "Art Gallery" in Honor of Pope John II, with huge paints of him and it also has awesome statues of the disciples of Jesus. It is a must see in Assisi.

This church was huge and not too far from St. Clare's church. The glass encased clothing worn by Francis and Clare and other of their articles was quite moving and helped to make real the many stories I have read of them.
