“A tiny chapel with beautiful frescoes and a spiritual calm”

Oratorio dei Pellegrini
Reviewed 8 November 2013

This gem is about halfway between the central piazza in Assisi and the Basilica of St Francis, on the left side of the road. It is not well marked and thousands of tourists walk past every day.
It is silent inside and photos are not allowed. On the altar there is a monstrance displaying a blessed communion wafer, which signifies the presence of Christ. A nun sits at the back in prayer.
I recommend you to go in, sit at one side for 5 minutes, then move across to the other side. so you can contemplate the frescoes opposite.

We loved this little oratory. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed and the walls are decorated with frescoes. A lovely stop along the Via San Francesco.

This small chapel is covered with stunning frescoes. Condition of frescoes is excellent, bright paintings look like done yesterday. The quality of frescoes is amazing. The style is similar to da Forli in Vatican. Unlike giant cathedral, you can see frescoes up close and in much more intimate atmosphere. This oratory is way underrated.
