Santa Maria degli Angeli, Assisi

(4.8/5 based on 1,800+ 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.

  • I keep repeating myself, what can you say about a majestic church with inside a tiny chapel where Francis went to pray. Only in Italy we have these treasures and very often do not value it properly.
