The Crypt of the Basilica di San Francesco

Basilica di San Francesco (Church of San Francesco)
Visiting the Basilica where in 1321 the last funeral rites of the Sommo Poeta (Supreme Poet) were held, a window opening can be seen under the altar: switching on the light with a 0.50 € coin, the suggestion of the Crypt invaded by water surprises, with the mosaic floor showing geometric patterns and some small columns. The Crypt is below sea level and it is invaded by clean water, as if it was a small swimming pool, and you can even see some goldfish swimming.
