St Clare

Basilica

St Clare Basilica accessible tour for wheelchair users.

 

The wheelchair users, reduced mobility and disabled accessible basilica of St Clare of Assisi, contains precious frescos dating back to the period from the XII to the XIV century.

In the chapel on the right, along the unique nave of St Clare of Assisi, you can admire the Crucifix which, according to tradition, would have invited St Francis in the church of St Damiano in order to "reset up the Church".

This chapel and the successive one are the remaining pieces of the pre-existing church of St Giorgio and they represent the most ancient part of the edifice.

In the crypt we have preserved the land remains of St Clare of Assisi and some relics particularly well preserved: among them there is a frock of San Francesco and a cloth realized by St Clare.

Born in 1194 in a noble family, the girl is baptized Clare in the Church of Rufino, because the mother, when she was praying a few days before delivering, had eared a voice telling her she would have given to the world a "clear light" to enlighten it.

During the years of education, the Saint also followed the crusaders in Promise Land.

However, it was during the night of the Palm Sunday, on March 18th 1212, that took place the experience that determined a radical change in her life; in fact, during that night, the girl joined in secret St Francesco at the “Porziuncola”.

Her Rule was officially approved in 1252 by Pope Innocenzo IV who, when he arrived to St Damiano to give the benediction to the Order of "the Clarisse".
