On our way to visit the Bascilica Santa Maria degli Angeli a local told us to go into the chapel inside the Bascilica with our hearts not our eyes. And it was worth taking her advice. This little chapel embodies what St. Francesco lived. It...More

A beautiful large church was built over and around the small chapel where St Francis preached and died. The chapel stands silently in the center. The large church is an amazing building with many frescoes and paintings well worth a stop to admire.

This is a beautiful place full of lovely artwork and a very spiritual feeling. It is worth a stop during your visit to the area, and I heartily recommend staying at the nearby fabulous Valle di Assisi Hotel and Spa.

Wonderful church in the lower city. The actual place where St. Francis lived and died. You can see the small church he built that the current church surrounds. Take a little time to visit the rose chapel above Francis' cell.

Beautiful church built over the chapel and death site of st. Francis. The golden st Margaret is quite striking, overlooking the piazza from the top spire

We traveled to Assisi to see the tomb of St Francis, perhaps one of our greatest saints. It was full of tourists and young people,who unfortunately didn't understand nor appreciate where they were. I was looking for a contact with the Lord. Then we went...More

What are the hours open in June? We will be traveling by train, arriving at 16:00 and want to stop here first. If we walk from the train station to the church, how do we get back to the town?

I agree. This place is below Assissi. I was on a tour bus so I did not pay close attention to the parking. There were a lot of street vendors which are taking up the side parking. Sorry, I cannot be of more help.
