Santa Maria degli Angeli, Assisi

(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Santa Maria degli Angeli, on the Umbrian plains near Assisi, is the birthplace of Christianity's Franciscan Order. The intricately frescoed basilica stands 75 m (246 ft) high. A carved tree trunk holds the altar in the building's crypt. You can view St. Francis of Assisi's rope belt, as well as his deathbed in the Capello del Transito, where he died in 1226. Be sure to visit the Porziuncola, the small ninth-century stone chapel around which the structure was built.

  • It's the perfect setting and Shell to accommodate the Porziuncola. The exterior is magnificent, both day and night with the lights on. Really impressive

  • Beautiful church with inside the Porziuncola, and other adjacent rooms that recall the life of Saint Francis. A place that exudes something special even for non-believer to 100%.
