We met an interesting guy at the convent where we stayed in Assisi. He had visited many times before so we asked him for a unique place to check out that most people don't. He told us to go here and it was so great!...More

We came across this church by accident and were charmed to discover the exhibition inside. The assistant explained the significance of the madonna sculpture, which was such a clever and inspired idea for a work of art. We were really impressed.
