This is where you will find St. Francis' spirit. Mass is well attended, unlike other churches all over Italy. Find St. Francis' statue which the doves never leave. Walk through the chapel built over the spot where he died. A beautiful faith experience.

Very moving little church associated with St Francis. You can also see the cell where he died nearby.

We have a love of St Francis and if you do, you must visit the Porziuncula. You can feel the spirituality of the place. I visit it every time. We know that St Francis would not like a big ornate church since he practiced simplicity,...More
