Location: Assisi - Basilica Superiore di San Francesco (424 m)      by: Alvise Bonaldo
Area: Italy      Date: 29.9.2018
La Basilica Superiore č uno dei luoghi sacri francescani pių visitati al mondo. L'edificio risale alla prima metā del 1200; la commistione fra semplicitā romanica e slancio gotico ha rappresentato l'archetipo architettonico di molti altri monumenti a cominciare dalla vicina basilica di Santa Chiara. L'interno č decorato con gli spettacolari 28 quadri della vita del Santo affrescati da Giotto e da allievi della scuola. Purtroppo la santitā e il fascino artistico e architettonico del luogo sono guastati dai troppi turisti che, anche se per scopi spirituali, visitano quotidianamente la chiesa.

The Upper Basilica is one of the most visited Franciscan sacred places in the world. The Gothic building dates back to 1200. The interior is decorated with the spectacular 28 paintings of the life of the saint frescoed by Giotto and his pupils. Unfortunately, the sanctity and artistic and architectural charm of the place are spoiled by too many tourists who, even if for spiritual purposes, visit the church every day.

I like this expressive motif much, Alvise - but please clean the sensor spots, even in your last panorama with the tele-view to the Alps (even more extreme there).

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

Thanks a lot HJ 
I tried many many times to clean the sensor, but... Now I can only work with Photoshop!
Ciao, Alvise
