The Lower Church of St. Francis in Assisi: the chapel of St. Nicholas and the Franciscan relics

Just before New Year’s, I stole away to Assisi for a day from Florence. I have a long history in this lovely hilltop hamlet, and I never tire of revisiting it. I enjoyed strolling through the center, and the highlight of any visit is to see the amazing frescoes of the church of Saint Francis. I’ll be posting about the paintings in the next few days, but I want to start my posts on the church with these elements below. Enjoy! They are astounding relics from 800 years ago.

I have a particular fondness for the saint, Nicolas. The frescoes in this chapel are dedicated to the story of his life.
