Upper Church, San Francesco, Assisi

The Upper Church, with its single nave and tall Gothic windows, has a bright and festive atmosphere. The cross-ribbed vaults, the window and the nave wall were decorated with frescoes over the period of several decades. The unified program created a kind of pictorial bible.
