Architectural Building
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.

  • As usual, my family and I have been going to this wonderful place x recurrence of Palm Sunday. The atmosphere seems surreal and when you enter the Porziuncola you are enveloped by the emotion that inspires this little church. The story of Saint Francis, although now known, it is always fascinating and revisit the places where he gives something special.

  • As you enter you feel accepted by fede........si warns the passage of St. Francis ... ... inside the porziuncola emotion sneaks and a crescendo ... .... To see at least once in their lifetime.

  • One of the Holiest place on earth, orgin of all of Indulgencies on Earth and place of perpetual Jubilee since 1216 ... 800 years of this celebrated in 2016
  • I was there In at the end of September, just beautiful.
  • The interior clashes, but it's just a very calm place
  • The most important is the little Capella inside of it. Peaceful Franciscan atmosphere and great bookshop
  • Worth the visit when in Assisi.
