“An incredible experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

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.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Beautiful. We liked seeing the Porziuncola and the Transito. There are masterpiece frescos depicting the life of St Francis which are easy to view and enjoy.

“Another Beautiful Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This cathedral is definitely one not to miss. From the courtyards to the Cathedral to the original Church St. Francis Built with his hands, and his "thornless" rose garden. It's a must see.
