Assisi – The Birthplace of St. Francis
Located in the heart of Italy, the city of Assisi is one of history and stunning ancient landmarks. Most famously known for being the birthplace of St. Francis (founder of the Franciscan religion), religious influence is prominent throughout the city. In fact, the imposing Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi is a Papal minor basilica and one of the most important places of Christian pilgrimage in all of Italy. And has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2000.
Originally, the city was a part of the Roman Empire. Today, the city is home to a widespread and impressive collection of monuments and ruins from this time period. Such as the ancient city walls, Piazza del Comune Forum, a theatre, an amphitheater, and the Temple of Minerva. All dating from as far back as 300 BC.
Over centuries, as the city began to evolve and thrive through different time periods, many notable landmarks were added to Assisi’s already impressive collection of architectural structures. The 13th century Rocca Maggiore Castle for example still stands proudly overlooking the city. While the 16th century Basilica of Santa Maria Degli Angeli is home to not only a magnificent church, but also a religious museum, a crypt, and a stunning rose garden.
For tourists interested in art, don’t be swayed by the seeming lack of museums. The city’s many Churches and Chapels are home to some of the most amazing collections of art pieces, murals and painted frescoes from a number of renowned Italian painters.
