There is a famous chapel. Our Lady 's painting is very dignified. A lot of people prayed at the chapel for a long time. It takes about 5 minutes on foot from Assisi station.

We were very surprised at how big this church is. St. Francis' chapel inside of this church is amazing. The number of chapels in use today were huge as well. The garden areas were pretty as well.
