  • The Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi

    Unesco site since 2000

    Assisi represents a unique example of a sanctuary city, perfectly inserted into its timeless natural environment, without  forgetting its Umbrian-Roman and medieval origins. The city has a heritage of art treasures and religious architecture, including the Basilica of San Francesco, an exceptional example of an architectural complex that has significantly influenced the development of art and architecture itself. The basilica complex is made up of two superimposed churches, the Lower (1228-1230) and the Upper (1230-1253), as well as a crypt, excavated in 1818, with the tomb of the Saint, where the remains rest in a simple sarcophagus resting on the living rock. Immersed in an extraordinary natural setting evoking a deep and intense spirituality, embellished with masterpieces of medieval art and the paintings of Cimabue, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti and Giotto enchanting the eyes, hearts and minds of visitors.
