On pilgrimage to visit the place where Francis began his ministry and died is a moving location. The Portiuncula in the middle of this amazing basilica is awe inspiring.

Before visiting Basil of St.Francesco di Assisi be sure to visit the Basil di Santa Maria degli Angeli. Interest outside, beautiful inside. Impressive organs, frescoes on the ceiling, but special feelings causes small chapel of St.Francesco which is the church in the church.
