亲亲宝贝1234A beautiful town on the top of the mountain, the evening scenery is so beautiful! The cathedral is very exquisite, and the interior decoration is gorgeous, but it's a pity not to let you take pictures! There happened to be an event held in the church. I watched it for a while. The outside scenery, the blue sky in the evening, accompanied by the sunset, is as beautiful as a picture!
M40***45The whole town of Assisi is like a fairy tale. Walking in it, you can't help but admire its exquisite beauty. When we entered the church, there were devout people praying, and there were ethereal and distant hymns in our ears, which made people calm down.
小花猫大笨熊The Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli (Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli) was built from 1569 to 1679. It surrounds a small church built in the 9th century and is the most sacred place of the Franciscan Church. The young Saint Francis understood his call and determined to retreat to a life of poverty and found the Franciscans. On April 11, 1909, the church was elevated to the "temple" by Pope Pius X.
In the square in front of the church, people were rubbing petals and plant leaves to paint on the ground.
To enter the church, you have to go through a security check machine, and no backpacks, knives, lighters, etc. are allowed in. The Italian soldiers with guns at the security check are so handsome. I resisted the desire to take photos of 180 times.
The golden statue of the Virgin stands on top of the church, overlooking all beings. Today is Sunday. Many believers in the church are praying. They can only enter the church lightly. Photographs are allowed at the door. Most of the churches are forbidden to take photos.
There is a simple and beautiful retreat room in the middle of the church. Many believers meditate and pray in it. I also stood on the wall for a while and experienced the solemn atmosphere.
There is a paid toilet on the left hand side of the church.
135***48In the 13th century, the body of Carles, the founder of the Poor Sisters, was buried here. He followed Francis, the founder of Franciscans during his lifetime. The clothes made by Carles for Francis are displayed in the window.
Q多多看世界This is an ancient town in Italy, a city famous for its religion, and a holy place for Catholics. Although it is not a religious believer, as a tourist, the monuments here are worthy of our walking slowly and savoring.
Assisi is a popular destination for pilgrims. Yet you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the town’s beautiful scenery, spectacular architecture and rich culture. Assisi is also a foodie’s paradise with mouth-watering meat, cheese and fine wine at the heart of town life. Here are the best things to see and do while you’re visiting this Umbrian city.
Located in the heart of Assisi’s Piazza del Commune, the six columns of the ancient Roman temple, the Tempio di Minerva, are impossible to miss. Built during the reign of Augustus in the first century BC, the pagan temple was abandoned when Rome converted to Christianity. Later, it became the headquarters of the Commune of Assisi in 1215. Still standing after 2,000 years, the temple is now home to a church.

The lower floors of the church are dimly lit, all covered with gorgeous wet murals, all from the famous handwriting (the paintings by Cimabue, Martini, etc.). However, there is not enough light inside, you can only enjoy it with limited lighting and candlelight. On the right side of the main hall is the crucifixion of Christ. On the left is the life of Saint Francis. One of them is the classic of the Virgin and Child painted by Lorenzo. The Virgin stared at St. Francis and his face showed a very loving look. It is said that this picture is more moving under the setting sun, so it is also called "The Madonna at dusk". There are also many wet murals on the altar, which should be drawn by the disciples of Giotto. The small clothing room on the right still retains the costumes of St. Francis. The most important of the lower church is the Franciscans in the cellar and the tombs of his four followers. There are also priests who listen to the repentance and blessings of the lost. This mantle was closed in the 15th century to avoid being shackled by mortals until it was reopened in 1818. Going to the bottom of the lower church, there is a small chapel on the wall with the "Life of St. Martin" by Simon Martin, which is worth watching.
From the lower steps of the lower church you can climb to the upper church, with a small atrium in the middle, selling books and souvenirs. Compared with the lower church, the upper church was more affected by the earthquake. The most famous church in the upper class is the wet fresco of the life of St. Francis, drawn by Giotto, which is called Giotto's work. However, according to modern testimony, at least three painters participated in these 28 masterpieces.
