Just minutes from her more famous protégé, St. Francis, Saint Clare rests in this beautiful basilica. Easily accessible with ample parking this is a must see when in Assisi.

Beautiful Basilica that houses the burial site of Saint Claire. One of many must see sites while visiting Assisi. A guide would be very helpful to tour the myriad of churches here.
