The hill town of Assisi is famous for being the birthplace of the beloved St. Francis of Assisi.  The town is striking for its medieval walls and castles, but particularly for the Basilica of St. Francis, which holds the saint’s remains. Even more striking than the gorgeous architecture is the tremendous spiritual atmosphere of the town, that almost every visitor notices. Assisi has become regarded as a place where true peace and brotherhood have found a home on Earth.
