This is the plaza leading up to the Basilica. It has bathrooms and I think there was a shop or tourist office here. My wife needed a place to rest after walking and along the colonnades was the perfect place for that.

It is no more than a large square that gives access to the basilica. It has a beautiful view of the fields of Assisi

This is the top of the complex. It's a church atop another church. There is a steep incline to reach this location. The views of the countryside from this height are awesome. The interior of the church is so typical of the Renaissance era. There was a follower dressed as St Francis. Please dress with respect to the religion as I saw many tourist with bare shoulders and short dresses.

Most people visit Assisi so as to venerate the remains of St. Francis, who is entombed in the Basilica bearing his name. As you walk up hill - Assisi sits on top of a hill - you finally come to this magnificent plaza in front and to the side of the Basilica, at its lowest level. (I recommend you start your visit to the Basilica at this level and not the highest.) You are rewarded by the best view of the entire church and if you look left as you approach the entrance, you will have magnificent views of the valleys below.
