We have a love of St Francis and if you do, you must visit the Porziuncula. You can feel the spirituality of the place. I visit it every time. We know that St Francis would not like a big ornate church since he practiced simplicity,...More

After visiting the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, I took a bus and went to this church. It is a historical chapel in the magnificent church. Many people were moved and praying at the figure of Our Lady.

The Porziuncola in Assisi is a hidden gem. The little church that St. Francis rebuilt is housed in the larger church of Saint Mary of the Angels. The atmosphere is always quiet and reverent with many people stopping to pray.

This is a must see site as a church within the beautiful and striking Santa Maria degli Angeli. This was a very simple but favorite church where Saint Francis spent his time to reflect. Highly recommended.

This little church within a church is gorgeous. St Francis worked and died here. The only downside is photography is not allowed, so keep your memories if not your photos. Worth the visit.

Such an interesting contrast between the small chapel of St Francis and the giant church they literally built around it. The chapel seems so much more fitting a monument to the saint than the church surrounding it or the one that bears his name up...More

The Porziuncola is located in the Basilica of St Mary's of the Angels. When driving into the valley just below Assisi we were greeted by this beautiful church. Upon entering we struck by the majesty of the church and then we walked to the center...More

Our guide called this the "baby church"inside a church. It is the chapel where St Francis heard the voice of God It was a moving experience to feel the energy and spirit of the love of St Francis here.
