  • 這座位於Assisi comune廣場中心的教堂,和羅馬等城市相似,將天主教堂建於古羅馬時期的遺址上,結合了古羅馬建築的概念,座落在市中心的它有一股脫俗的美。  more »
  • Assisi is not only San Francisco, but right downtown, in the Town Hall square is another interesting attraction is the Roman Forum that along with the Museum gives a nice overview of what was once an important centre in Roman times. Tickets cost 4 euros.

  • Incredible glory left in this Roman columns, which can be found behind the Church in Baroque style.

  • The temple of Minerva was repurposed - like so many other Roman buildings that survived - into a Christian church. The columns from the old temple form the church's portico. The inside is typical baroque - probably rather good if you like that sort of thing. Its nice to see the parts of the old temple that are still standing being put to good use.
  • Spent several hours in front of this place taking in the sights and eating gelato!
  • Nice church
  • Classic 1st Century Roman (NOT Greek) facade is almost all that remains of what was a beautiful temple. Don't miss the original temple floor tiles on both sides of the altar.
  • Beautiful church with ancient Greek facade.
