Things to see
The Churches are decorated with frescoes painted by some of the most famous artist of the period: Cimabue, Giotto, Piero Lorenzetti and in all probability Pietro Cavallini.
Right next to the Basilica there is the Franciscan monastery called the Sacro Convento. The friary is now house to a museum and a library. The museum offers collections of art’s works entirely donated by pilgrims while the library has a vast assortment of medieval codices.
