Stop At:  
Basilica Papale e Sacro Convento di San Francesco d'Assisi
The Basilica of San Francesco is a sacred place par excellence and the destination of the Christian pilgrimage, visited by millions of tourists every year. Since 1230 it preserves and guards the mortal remains of the saint, according to tradition it was Francesco himself who chose the place of his burial, this is the place where the "lawless", condemned by justice, were usually buried. Francis was proclaimed Saint only two years after his death on July 16, 1228, and the next day, they laid the foundation stone for the construction of his imposing Basilica, a complex of immense artistic value, both for the architecture and for the precious frescoes and interior decoration. The upper Basilica has a Gothic, bright and slender appearance, and the lower Basilica is lower and austere. The beating heart of the Basilicas would be the Crypt with the Tomb of San Francesco.
