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 St. Francis' death is humble and inspiring, and don't miss the rose garden. Blessed.
