While walking around Assisi, I came to the Temple of Minerva. It currently houses a church, Santa Maria sopra Minerva, built in 1539 and renovated in the 17th century. It was another beautiful church. It is small but quite ornate. There is a lovely fountain...More

Set in the main old town piazza is this temple dedicated to the ancient goddess Minerva. It is a Roman looking temple and had been converted into a beautiful small church.

Every Saturday there is a free mid-day concert (donations can be left at the end) and the church was full. The interior is stunning and the concert, which was led by the renowned music director, Carlo Forlivesi was wonderful. It lasted 45 minutes. The acoustics...More

This was a Roman Pagan Temple that was converted to a Catholic Church. The outside is still decorated with the Roman Columns. It is an amazing structure.

We loved the art, stained glass and history of this place. There’s a beautiful tomb in the basement where you can light a candle for loved ones and learn more about the history of the place and people.

From the outside, this church looks magnificent with the big columns decorating the outside of the building. Once inside, the church is very small and intimate. It is very peaceful there; the statue of Our Lady behind the altar is stunning. The Saint Rita of...More

Having originally been a Roman Temple and then converted to. Roman Catholic Church, this church is an interesting building and, with its worn, front columns and original history, it is very different to the other in town. As expected, the interior is rather ornate, and...More
