“An incredible experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

This is where St. Francis lived, worked and died. It is a huge building, overshadowing the area, while the Basilica of St. Francis and Assisi is on the hill above.
There are ornate chapels with the Basilica and a quiet, serene feeling throughout. There is a wonderful gift shop, complete with items made bt the resident monks.
The site of St. Francis' death is humble and inspiring, and don't miss the rose garden. Blessed.

“Beautiful”

Beautiful. We liked seeing the Porziuncola and the Transito. There are masterpiece frescos depicting the life of St Francis which are easy to view and enjoy.

Quaint little place for a wander and enjoy a coffee.Lovely setting with plenty of places to sit and rest.In the evening the area gets a little crowded but not to be unpleasant.
Worth a visit.

“Another Beautiful Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This cathedral is definitely one not to miss. From the courtyards to the Cathedral to the original Church St. Francis Built with his hands, and his "thornless" rose garden. It's a must see.
