Santa Chiara is at the opposite end of Assisi from the Basilica of San Francesco and what bookends they make for each other just as they did when they were alive . Santa Chiara's church is truly reflective of St Francis, simple with few decorations to distract you from the altar and God. The light coming in through the stained glass windows in the afternoon light made the altar radiant. Downstairs you can visit the tomb and view items of clothing from her life . Upstairs a lovely sister will accept your offering for masses for loved ones, entering the name in a lovely hand in a ledger book. While the church receives a large number of visitors it is much more peaceful and allows for quiet prayer and reflection of a life that left the secular world for contemplation and good works in the name of God.
