Walking through the small and unadorned chapel and dining room where Saint Clare prayed and ate touched me. Standing outside and seeing the views of the beautiful valley with so many olives trees was peaceful.

We started our day here in the place where Francis presumably had hos Call to ‘rebuild the church’, although the crucifix that spoke to him has been moved to a church in Assisi. The monestary is very peacefull and clearly a place of reflection and...More

If you visit Assisi, this is a must see trip, even though not in the centre of town ( is walkable if fit). St Francis helped build this for St Clare - in our view , one of the most memorable of the sites.

This place really conveys the messages that Saints Francis and Clare sent to us. Simple, beautiful, refined. Sad that many of the visitors seem untouched by this and ignore the requests for quiet meditation.

I loved my visit to San Damiano. It seemed so humble and beautiful, and I felt like I could connect to the spiritual significance of the sight. The views from the grounds of the valley below were also amazing.

I was expecting a much different experience after having read reviews and articles about this spiritual place calling it a place of solitude and reflection. I arrived 45 minutes before the opening, but perhaps a Sunday was not a good day to visit. The other...More

We walked to San Damiano from the centre of Assisi. It's about 30 minutes and worth every step. I felt humbled to be in the place where St. Francis lived and then St. Claire. It is so simple and everywhere is infused with deep spirituality....More
