  • Every building that's almost a thousand years old is worth seeing, but in Assisi, there is so much to choose from that this one simply is not one of the best. It is a beautiful building without many.....  more »

  • Very nice church. Simple with great atmosphere.
  • Splendid Church in the Umbrian Romanesque style composed of pink stone of Mount Subasio is consecrated to the Benedictine Order; l, for this reason it is due to sobriety in appearance. Included in the Unesco World Heritage list in 2000 is composed of three aisons, three entrances and three rose-roses, built by the Benedictines in the Tenth century and remodelled several times until the definitive reconstruction that dates back to the THIRTEENTH century. Restored in 1959 after years of use as a hospital.
