  • The Church is small and well cared for, was built on the ruins of the House of Francesco (still visible). On the left side of the church there is a cell in which the father kept Francis when the latter made him a sharer of his decisions and choices in life. Below the Church is a visible part of the House-workshop, outside there are bronze statues of the parents of Francis.

  • I hadn't got into this church ... Itself does not have much to see: clean and well taken care of is a nice place of prayer. I enjoyed the altar in scagliola (imitation) placed in the center of the presbytery: better than post-dated things that you see around. The underground part, the remnants of the paternal home of St. Francis: if they don't say anything but beyond appearance, speak of a simple and industrious life, in which Francis grew up and where he wanted to then break away to follow his vocation.

  • Beautiful interior with interesting frescoes and other works of art.
  • This beautiful little church and the square around it was constructed over the area in which Saint Francis' home was located.
  • In 2010, we celebrated our 52nd anniversary in Italy. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the city of Assisi where we stayed at the Hotel Alexander. We were hoping for a room with a beautiful view, but instead the view was blocked entirely by the huge dome of the "New Church" next door. Then we realized that this WAS the beautiful view! What more could you want than a magnificent ancient dome almost within touching distance! Wonderful memories.
  • Must visit when you go to Assisi because it stands on the former home of San Francesco where one can still see the cell where the Saint was chained and imprisoned. Open the warehouse where the father was selling cloth. Beautiful frescoes and the square in front of the Church with the statues of the Saint's parents.

  • Church artistically irrelevant, but lies on the birthplace of Francis of Assisi. At the bottom you can still see part of Francis ' father's shop while in church is visible from where Francis was locked up by her father.
