Owner description: First built as early as the 5th century, this historic church features the baptismal font of St. Francis, St. Clare and Emperor Frederick II.

This is the church that St Clare and St Francis were baptized in. It has so much rich history! It is beautiful inside--- and so holy and blessed. There are ruins underneath that are topped with a glass floor -- something very unique to experience!
I was there for the feast day Mass, and it was such an amazing experience! Definitely a wonderful church to visit!
And the pizza place in that piazza is so amazing.

Assisi is very busy but to find some inner peace visit here. It has an aura of calm that envelops you from the moment you walk through the door. It truly has an impact each time I visit.

One of the oldest churches in Assisi. In the back left corner is a special chapel with a very old statue dating back to the 11th Century of Mary holding the wounded Christ. Go and sit in here for a while and feel your heart opening.
Under the Cathedral are the ancient ruins with exhibitions of works from the period.

It is a very nice place to pray in silence, since it a low-profile place , although AMAZING!
I advise God-lovers to go there and spend some time in silence.

Most impressive inside. Many pieces of original artwork and various exhibits to explore. The crypt is also very interesting and you can tell that a lot of time and thought has gone into putting the materials together for all to observe and enjoy. Wonderful place to relax and learn about the art, culture and history of Assisi.
