English: The Gothic 13th and 14th-century Lower Basilica, of the Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi complex, is located in Assisi, Perugia - Umbria - Italy.
  • The Gothic late 13th and 14th-century lower basilica was built as an enormous crypt with cross-ribbed vaults. The doors are surmounted by a large rose window within the portal - called "the eye of the most beautiful church in the world." The Basilica and its chapels are rich in works of the fine and decorative arts and the artisan crafts.
  • The Martin of Tours Chapel (Cappella di San Martino), within the Lower Basilica, has Gothic frescos that are among the finest extant examples of 14th-century painting.
  • The Lower and Upper Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi are an important place of pilgrimage and a World Heritage Site.
