The Oratory, built in the 15th century, is found along Via San Francesco, almost hidden. Above the entryway is an old and faded fresco, but inside are magnificent frescos. In early years, it was a hostel for pilgrims, stopping to pay homage to St. Francis.

A tiny building but rich in 15th century frescoes, just down from the basilica. well worth a visit to see wonderful paintings in a more manageable surrounding

Not large, but pretty & accessible (both mentally & physically). You meet it on the left as you approach the great Basilica of St Francis from the main square.

Although the space is small, the fresco decorations are a wonderful, coherent set. Spend a few minutes in peace and quiet to contemplate some truly spectacular art.

Almost missed this little jewel. Worth stopping and having a look on this very old chapel, its amazing paintings and energy. Don't miss it

Nearly missed this tiny exquisite chapel on the way down to the Bascilica. Absolutely stunning and only takes minutes to view but WOW

This small but beautiful frescoed fifteenth century chapel is well worth a visit on your way to the basilica.

it's small but its frescos are very nice. and being right halfway between S. Chiara and S Francesco churches (basically 20 minutes of shop after shop) it offers a welcome artistic, cultural stop

This tiny chapel, used for perpetual adoration by Franciscan nuns, has lovely frescos and is a peaceful oasis on a busy Assisi street. It's right across from Assisi Jewels and offers a sharp contrast to the commercial district just beyond its curtained doors. Stop in!
