We popped in for the morning Mass and it's apparent that the faithful are drawn to its quiet dignity and piety. Gorgeous but restrained embellishments add just the right atmosphere to the lively church. To be admired inside and outside.

This is an amazing cathedral that houses the church of Saint Francis inside. It is whereSaint Francis would stay much of his time and also where he died. A beautifully adored church.

The story of St Francis starts here. This is where he lived, worked and died. It is the big Church that surrounds the "baby" church--Porzuincola. It stands alone outside the main city. You can see it across the fields. It is a moving and beautiful...More

This huge Basilica below Assisi holds the Porziuncola (small chapel) where St. Clare received the Franciscan cowl from Francis in 1211. St Francis died in this site on October 3, 1226. There are amazing frescoes throughout the basilica. It is definitely a place to visit...More
