The Tour About the Basilica

This morning we went to visit a Basilica of St Francis . We learnt a lot of things with our tour guide Marcella and these are some of the facts :

As soon as you enter you see the four names of the people who died in the earthquake 20 yrs ago

The frescoes were made with a special plaster underneath and it had to be wet when painting the pictures otherwise it would fail. That meant completing the painting in a day.

Those are only some of the things we learnt today!

The entrance:

The Tau cross behind our group.

We spell ASSISI…..
