Walking tour Assisi: include the  basilica of Saint Francis and the highlights of the city.

Assisi is a very important city for Christians: it is an eternal destination for pilgrims, who wish to the see the places where “Saint Francis” was born, where he lives, and where he died. ...

Assisi is a small town – located in the slopes of Mount Subasio – everything in sight seems to be linked to St. Francis, even if it is only remotely relevant to his life.

Together with almost all its surrounding territory, Assisi was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. It was described as a unique example of continuous history: a city-sanctuary beginning with its Umbrian-Roman origins, through the Medieval Age and up until today.

The World Heritage Committee included the “Basilica of Saint Francis” on its list, and other sites, which are important to the Franciscan Order.

All those places represent a collection of masterpieces deriving from creative human genius – aside from being a fundamental reference in European and international art history. In particular, the  “Basilica of Saint Francis was referred to as an extraordinary example of an architectonic complex that has heavily influenced the development of art and architecture. The “Basilica of Saint Francis” was built in the year 1228 to preserves the relics of the body of “Saint Francisthat is preserved inside since the year 1230, when the “Basilica” was inaugurated.

The “Basilica” was built on two floors, where the lower church has the function of a sepulchral church, here is the place where the Body of “Saint Francis” is preserved inside a sarcophagus under the main altar of the lower church.

The superior “Basilica” is known for the amazingfrescoes” of the decoration, where many famous artists of the beginning of XIV century works, included “Giotto”.

By the “Basilica of Saint Francis” is possible to visit “the convent” where the priests of the “Franciscans religious order” use to live and prey since 1230
