Basilica of San Francesco.

Approximately 90 miles north of Rome, in the rolling hills of Umbria, stands the well-preserved medieval town of Assisi. Known primarily as the birthplace of St. Francis (1182-1226 AD),

The Basilica of San Francesco, one of Italy's foremost monuments, was built between 1228 and 1253 AD.

The Basilica of San Francesco is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Order of Friars Minor, which are known as the Franciscan Order, in Assisi (Italy). It is also the birthplace of St. Francis as well as his burial place. The basilica is one of the most important places of any Christian pilgrimage in Italy. The basilica, which was begun in 1228, is built into the side of a hill and it is made up of two churches known as the Upper Church and the Lower Church. Inside is a crypt where the remains of St. Francis are interred. It has an accompanying friary adjacent to the basilica. It is a very distinctive landmark to anyone approaching the town of Assisi.

It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

We were first there in August of 1999.
