Saw this church from Assisi and decided to visit. Has a small church within the church and certainly worth the detour.

Beautiful, but we were there in late afternoon, just as hundreds completing pilgrimages arrived, so it was the most crowded of any location we visited in Assisi.

We stopped here after visiting the Basilica of St Francis. It's just amazing that this huge, beautiful building houses a smaller church. The artwork in this church will take your breath away. The monks began to recite the rosary when we were there. So incredibly beautiful and spiritually moving. Take the time to visit this place. There is so much... More

We almost missed this amazing place ( it is more than a church or a Bascilica) but the geocachers on our trip just happened upon it. The church itself is a bit extravagant, but the original church of St Francis himself is easily contained within the Bascilica itself. Spend some time within and you will be moved. But wait...there's more!... More

St. Francis' first church is contained within this church. Participated in a mass in this small church. An amazing feeling to have taken communion in the church were St. Francis' once did the same thing. The church is beautifully preserved though the facade was altered from the original. It is a bit ornately and takes something away from the simplicity... More

This is where St. Francis lived, worked and died. It is a huge building, overshadowing the area, while the Basilica of St. Francis and Assisi is on the hill above. There are ornate chapels with the Basilica and a quiet, serene feeling throughout. There is a wonderful gift shop, complete with items made bt the resident monks. The site of... More
