Via Google images. Basilica of St Francis.
The Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi was completed in 1253.
Ancient Roman road.
In ancient times the walled city gate was closed at night but a water source was available outside the gate for travelers. The water spiquot is still in operation today.
I hope you have been impressed by the beauty of Umbria, the significance of the life and work of St. Francis and the age and amazing structures that still remain in Assisi and Spello. Next stop, Sorrento and Capri.
