Its construction dates back to 1345 and the work finished in the last XV century.

A few km from Assisi

Assisi is a small hilly/mountainous centre, rich in history and monuments belonging to the most varied periods; the famous Roman Amphitheatre dating back to the I century has been, sadly, almost entirely destroyed, while the Temple of Minerva, dating back even to the I century B.C., has a still visible façade with six Corinthian columns, very well preserved.
Assisi is famous above all for its Basilicas of San Francesco and Santa Chiara, two of the most venerated saints in Italy. The Basilica of San Francesco is the destination of thousands of tourists every year; it dates to the XIII century and still preserves the remains of the saint who used to talk to animals; it was declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Less imposing, but not less important, the Basilica of Santa Chiara, also built in the XIII century, in its style recalls that of San Francesco. Here too, the church preserves the relics of the saint.
Assisi is easily reachable also by the main Umbrian airport, just about 10 km from the city centre, booking your rental car at Perugia Airport on RentalUpwebsite.
