Midnight Mass at Santa Maria Degli Angeli is a memory from my Bucket List. The atmosphere is more like that of a neighborhood church rather than a grand cathedral. The choir, composed of residents and not monks as one might expect, comes to their places in the choir stalls behind the main altar about 11:30 pm. Volunteers, wearing identifying uniform-style...

This is the beginning of St Francis. The inside of the church is the same spot where St. Francis heard God's calling. The rose garden outside is where he performed his miracle. There are many people as well as pilgrimage groups touring but take time to look at the history, there is nothing that compares to Santa Maria degli Angeli.... More

My friend and I visited this Basilica in the afternoon at about 4 pm, and it was very quiet with few visitors. We could see the Basilica after alighting from the bus (which goes to the main train station). After clearing security and entering the Basilica, we went to the porziuncola and admired the artwork inside and outside. The altar... More

In the midst of the surrounding areas to Assisi is Santa Maria degli Angeli, both a huge church and the name of the 'town' in which it is situated. It is a huge basilica and marks one of the most revered spots of St. Francis' life. Because it is situated only in a village, it is almost more remarkable to... More

Simply magnificent. The direct link with St Francis was particularly special for us. Busy but not crowded, a haven of peace despite the bustle.

A must visit place but need not spend too much time unless you're on a pilgrim. A chance to see the original church which St Francis built.

Go here on a Saturday evening at 9pm. The entire church is filled. Say the rosary. The procession goes onto the courtyard. You'll be given candles that will be lit after the rosary. I've been to this event more than once and find it life changing. I think the locals keep this going all year. You can web cam this... More

A beautiful church for prayer and reflection. The small chapel within the church, paintings and architecture are worth exploring.

This is a must. So many people miss it and go straight into Assisi. It is amazing. There is so much to see.

What else to add to the center of the Franciscans of the whole world. Just entering in this beautiful basilica and seeing the holy place of St. Francis' death - Porziuncola is a fascination in itself.
