Who can ever forget seeing the FAMOUS cross. Be still my heart. Amazing and so well worth the visit. It is everything I dreamed of and more.

In the main piazza a huge church of Saint Clair...easy to find and with plenty of views ,seating around the piazza bars and eateries..remember girls to take something to cover your shoulders as they can be a touch funny as it's not allowed ...

I wasn`t knowledgeable about St. Clare so was very glad to be able to see her church and know she was St. Francis`s first convert.

A simple church but what is holds is so important. Holy relics such as Saint Francis robes and Saint Clare's hair along with the wooden cross under which Saint Francis had his vision which is 800 years old!

Can't help but be moved.

The simple gothic design of this church will make the visit worth it. Not grandiose like the other but it functions as a charity for the poor even to this day.
