Church of Saint-Mary-of the Angels

Interesting
This 16C basilica surrounds the Portioncule built around the Millennium that St Francis named Clare the Bride of Christ in. It was in the neighbouring Chapel of the transit that he died on October 3 1226. In addition to the beautiful frescoes dedicated to the Franciscans and a beautiful glazed earthenware polyptych by Andrea della Robbia, there is the rose bush, which the saint threw himself into to resist temptation, the cave he prayed in and a statue of the saint, which the doves love.
