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.

We started our Assisi tour here at this Church. We were able to view the cross that spoke to Saint Francis, it was originally at San Damiano, and later moved here. The church is beautiful and is the resting place of Saint Claire.
