Amazing!

Amazing from outside, a great example of architecture and the inside includes the Porziuncola, which is a small chapel in the church itself! Incredible.

A must see. Go to see La Portziuncola inside the Santa Maria degli Angeli. This is the little church that St. Francis rebuild at the beginning of the 13th century. Even if you aren't religious or a church goer....you must see the golden fresco painted above the altar of this tiny building...simply breathtaking!

It is a spiritual place where you can "feel" the spirit of St. Francis there. Here you can find many quiet corners to pray. There are confessionals with English confessors as well. If you visit Assisi, you must come to Santa Maria degli Angeli to pray. It should not be missed on your list.

I enjoyed visiting this Cathedral more then the Basilica up the road. Free parking at the back. It is a vast structure and when we visited it included the most interesting nativity scenes from many countries around the world. The inside of the Cathedral is not as decorated as others but the focus is the Porziuncola which is worth checking... More

This church is beautiful in its own right and also houses the tiny church St. Francis used. The complex itself is enormous and contains a museum. There is also a large gift shop that contains a small pharmacy dedicated to things made by Franciscan monks, which I thought was really neat. This is located just outside Assisi and is well... More

I love to visit the basilica whenever I am in Italy. It's a truly faith affirming experience and one I'd recommend to anyone. If you're in Assisi, pop down the mountain and spend a day here. You won't regret it.

Beautiful church and grounds! The little church, the Porzunicola is inside. This is the church that St Francis built and was moved inside the larger church. Go see it!

This is a church for prayer and wonder. The Porziuncula (church named for a piece of land) is lovingly located within this church and is most amazing to visit and leads one to prayer.
