Pilgrims in Assisi at the Basilica of St. Francis

The famous Caravanserraglio outside and the frescoes painted by Giotto inside

Pilgrims in Assisi!

Here is the 14th century Basilica of St. Francis, where the Saint’s body is preserved. In front of it, the “Caravanserraglio“, a huge portico that was used to accommodate pilgrims.

Inside, the upper Basilica contains the famous frescoes of the life of St. Francis, painted by Giotto in 1300. We do revise some steps of the Saint’s life and vocation through the paintings, some kind of dramatisations having the aim to tell the folk about him.
