Santa Maria degli Angeli is the second holiest place in Assisi. It's a Basilica that also contains in itself the Porziuncola, the little Church so dear to Saint Francis, where his vocation started. It's not really in Assisi, but outside, close to the railway station....More

If it's not too hot for you, talk the footpath down from Assisi to visit this beautiful Church. Although honostly, don't donut on the same day as visiting st. Francis basilic; that's too much impressions... you'll simply be overwhelmed... take it easy, and leave at...More

Immens, big, people, altars. This sanctuary Embraces the Porziuncula. Big enough and still a meditative athmosphere when the franciscans are around to guide the crowds.

Church harbouring smaller chapel. The church itself has beautiful ceiling paintings as well. Much more modest decorations compared to basilica San Francisco but still very beautiful.

You must come and visit. Seeing st Francis hut was a truly spiritual and special moment. That is really all there is though and then you get a bit stuck in there!

We found the church itself was a bit busy - baroque, in the heart is the decorated cabin which does the peace & tranquility bit; also the cloisters & garden and great. The toilets are miles away outside.Disabled access poor.
