Don't miss the Assisi Heights Convent. The stone buildings are located on a prominent hill overlooking Rochester. This is a beautiful, peaceful place with spectacular architecture. The entrance is an ornate lobby with slate floor, 60 foot tall Italian marble columns, and hand-blown stained glass windows from Germany. The very large granite columns are all identical in shape but of several different colors -- green, blue, brown, etc. Our guide was one of the sisters. She told us that Assisi Heights Convent is a 3-story Italian Romanesque building, the home of the Sisters of St. Francis. The structure bears a striking resemblance to the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Italy.
