An well preserved vegetable garden and some nice... More

The beautiful buildings are wonderful to tour. Be sure to call in advance for a tour. The grounds are a special place to renew yourself with nature. The Sisters would like to know who is on their property, so step inside the main hall and sign in and wear a tag. Many concerts are available and Mass on Sundays in... More

How do you describe such a wonderful, quiet, beautiful place? You will love your trip up the beautiful winding drive with trees full of birds and plots of flowers all around.... More

Beautiful Building and extraordinary services being done at Assisi Heights. Thanks to all the sisters there who are doing a great job. This beautiful building sits on a small hill and is so gorgeous.

A lovely peaceful place to enjoy the views. The place itself is beautiful - modeled after the original Assisi in Italy and overlooking the city. The construction and artisanship that created it are spectacular.

If you've got a little time in Rochester you ought to add a tour of Assisi Heights to your itinerary. It's lovely expanse on the hill is visible from many locations around town. The sisters of St. Francis provide tours, during which you can get details about its history and enjoy the architecture.
