A beautiful basilica that encloses the little lovely church of the Porziuncola, the crypt were St Francis died and the Rose Garden behind sacristy where St Francis talked to the doves...an oasis of peace that one can't miss...

This basilica located 4 kms away from Assisi is very rich in history. One particular chapel that people visit inside this church is the small church of the Porziuncula. It is both associated with St. Benedict and St. Francis. As to the basilica, it gets pretty crowded every August 2 on the occasion of the feast of Our Lady of the Angels. Thousands of people flock to the place to receive indulgence. I would not recommend that you visit the place on this day nor on October 4 (feast day of St. Francis).

On a road trip in Italy starting from Rome through Assisi and through Tuscany we accidentally passed by the Basilica and stopped to visit. An impressive place to pray, the old church is still preserved in the middle of the new building - which is not common!

Learnt about the story and path of St Francis Assisi and the roses named after him

This is an enormous and impressive Papal Basilica located at the bottom of Assisi. The exterior is impressive with the Golden Madonna Statue and the interior is even more beautiful with a little path to follow to see some hidden treasures... It is definitely worth seeing.

There is a famous chapel.
Our Lady 's painting is very dignified.
A lot of people prayed at the chapel for a long time.
It takes about 5 minutes on foot from Assisi station.
