Museo della Porziuncola Reviews
A feature inside and out in the courtyard is an extensive display of wonderful nativity scenes from all over the world. Fun for all ages. Great gift shop too more »
I was very impressed with this museum. The displays and the brochure were well done. It helped me understand the area of the Porziuncola as it was inhabited by the friars. more »
We made a pilgrimage from St. Clare, to St. DaMiano, to the Museo della Porziucola. We did not realize that we were retracing the last journey of St Francis before his death. He had gone to see Clare at DaMiano the day before his passing. What a beautiful and spiritual day. I highly recommend doing it.
