Assisi is known throughout the world as the city of St Francis, the monk who spoke to the animals and with God, whose cult has spread across the globe. Linked to the Saint are the Basilica of St Francis, as well as the Eremo of the Prisons and the convent of St. Damian, the place where God spoke to the Monk.
As well as these places associated with the saint, there are many other sites which earn Assisi great historical relevance, the Palazzo dei Priori in the Piazza del Comune, the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and the temple of Minerva. Descending towards the plains below the city, one finds the large Basilica of St. Maria of the Angels, erected to protect the Porziuncola Chapel.
The geographical position of Assisi completes the beauty of the place, dominated by Mount Subasio, a natural oasis rich of holm oaks and oak trees. The visitor is struck by the medieval structure, characterized by the long city wall which protects the heart of the ancient Assisi.
