Tours Assisi Is Umbrian town in the province of Perugia, a medieval remained intact for centuries. And it still protected by a sturdy wall – which climbs on the western spur of Mount Subasio – and is dominated by the bulk of the Rocca Maggiore and the great Basilica of San Francesco. The construction of Assisi, its history and its great
personalities, have had a hand Earth and Sky. In fact, this ring is dual Assisi making it a magical, unforgettable, unique in the world. The visitor who crosses the Valle Umbra, the city appears from afar like a painting full of churches, towers and houses, framed by massive walls: this is the work of the Earth, man, here he wanted to leave
unmistakable signs, deep and eternal. But even before you enter the town, before crossing the ancient port of
St. Francis of Assisi, feels the presence in the air, the hand of Heaven, that intangible and magical touch of the spirit that permeates trees and rocks, roads and squares, buildings and gardens, wells and fountains, everything.
Assisi, the sweet alchemy that dates back to the early thirteenth century, to Francis and Clare, cheers the heart and the eye, leads to the transcendent and carries up at the distant worlds of Light, the Thought, the Faith and Poetry. Assisi – not only in the sacred places – continue to echo the verses of the Canticle of the Sun, with which St. Francis
immersed himself in Nature and thanked the Creator. Assisi is not only a city: Assisi is San Francesco, Assisi is an experience. As mentioned, the town jealously preserves its medieval structure, although in the streets, squares and monuments, sprouting here and there the remains of a Roman municipium. Here architects, wood and iron
craftsmen, sculptors, artists of all kinds have left the imprint, giving Assisi a single face. Here, at the beauty of the lines and purity of the stone, it seems that time has stopped here the Middle Ages is sovereign. The road system is characteristic of a small town of the thirteenth century, perched on the slopes of a Hill. Not are symmetrical
structures, because the houses have been reworked several times over the centuries: make witness the many walled doors and windows and the speronature support. The tile roofs and terracotta tiles stretch out on the street sustained by wooden corbels. As if to accentuate the sense of security, the entire city center is inserted inside the city walls:
walls that have gone through various vicissitudes, and that they carry the secret of so much history. The perimeter of the walls is about five kilometers. The function of the alleys, straight and perpendicular, was to make quickly reach the walls in case of a sudden attack. Complete the planning framework, providing easily the visitor the idea that is
living in a past time, the eight gates of the city (San Giacomo, Perlici, Moiano, St. Francis, New, St. Peter, Capuchins and Sementone). Assisi not only has an important artistic and cultural history, as evidenced by the Palazzo dei Priori and the Municipal Art Gallery, but has always been a place of pilgrimage in the Christian world. There are numerous
churches, among which stands the Basilica of St. Francis, divided into Upper Basilica – frescoed between thethirteenth and fourteenth century, and which houses Giotto’s cycle of the Life of St Francis – and the Lower Basilica. Important and popular they are also the Basilica of Santa Chiara, the church of San Damiano, where
