“Fell in love with St. Clare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Even though this was built after Clare's death, her spirit filled this Basilica. The original icon from San Damiano where St. Francis was praying when he received God's call to "build my church" is housed here at Santa Chiara. It is very powerful and moving. We returned a 2nd day to sit and pray.

“Incredible to see this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Absolutely gorgeous and filled wih history. Totally worth a visit. The church is beautifully painted and has many objects with religious significance. You can visit the tomb of Saint Claire, which is a moving experience and learn about her life and works.

“It was a great experience being there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

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.
