It is in the town of Santa Maria degli Angeli about 3 km down the hill from Assisi. All the tour books say this church is in Assisi and technically maybe it is, but the people who live there say it isnt. It is an incredible place no matter where it is.The basilica was built around a revered place of St. Francis and is now a church within a church. The day I was there they were having a funeral for a local priest and the volunteers were very zealous about not allowing pictures, or getting to close to something and they ended up closing the little church to visitors. There isnt anything else in the town to see, but the trip down the mountain from Assisi was worth the bus ride to see this.
