Don't fool yourself for the first view of this church. It was built surrounding a small and simple chapel, with an amazing spiritual value. For the architecture lovers, this is such a finding. But, for those seeking good vibrations, I would recommend to go directly to the small chapel, where Saint Clare took her vows. A good place to contemplate,... More

A beautiful church in the lower part of Assisi. Very interesting. The miniature ancient church is located inside this church.

Personally we like the interior of this church better than the Basilica of St. Francis. It is brighter and beautiful. It houses the Porziuncola, the little church given to St Francis by the Benedictine monks and was the place where St Francis breathed his last breaths. The crypt and the rose garden are also beautiful. The gift shops sells various... More

There is easy parking out in front, but be sure to move the little paper clock on your dashboard, to show your arrival time. It is well worth making a stop here, as there is the chapel where St. Francis died. When we went mass was going on, but we were still able to walk up the side of the... More

The inside of this Basilica contains the church that Francis was told by Jesus in his first vision to rebuild.. Located down the hill from the main attractions in Assisi, it is easy to miss, but It is really a remarkable site and well worth the time. The church inside the church is pretty awesome..

One summer day in Rome - on 9 July 2010 - as i was preparing my bags for a stayover in Assisi, my buddy hinted to me with a smile on his face:"go and take a look at the dove(s) when you pass by the Statue of St Francis - at the Basilica of St Mary of the Angels..." and... More

We travelled on bus line c from Assisi, about 15 minutes away. The church itself is imposing, but it is the little chapel within that is so important. the church called Porziuncola is where St Francis heard God's command to fix the church. It is also where he died. The original girdle he wore is preserved in a box for... More

Really very beautiful church, located near Assisi but not in the city itself but a few kilometers before reaching the famous city Franciscan. The most striking thing just came here is the amazing dome and the statue of the Virgin Mary, a great architectural complex and at the same time of high artistic and architectural. Must see before you reach... More

Out walking one day and stumbled on this plaza with one of the many fountains and statues of Rome. To the left was a church and we went inside as you can all the churches except at lunchtime. What we found was breathtaking. One of our highlights! It is in the Piazza della Repubblica.
