  • I was very excited, I thought intensely about the life of St. Francis and his Order expanded over time. In Assisi every year on August 2nd the Feast of Forgiveness is celebrated, I was interested in "the indulgence of Porziuncola" or "Forgiveness of Assisi", sin is eliminated and the trawl of sin is eliminated, this happens with prayer, with strong belief and with the sacraments Eucharist and confession. Inside the structure I saw the paintings and frescoes kept in the former cells of the friars that became a museum, from The Porziuncola to the Transit to the Chapel of the Roses is a wonderful path where you are magnetized by the mystical atmosphere from the frescoes and frescoes and from the works. Memorable

  • I recommend a guide to better understand what you visit and to get into the depths of the faith and life of St. Francis

  • We made a pilgrimage from St. Clare, to St. DaMiano, to the Museo della Porziucola. We did not realize that we were retracing the last journey of St Francis before his death. He had gone to see Clare at DaMiano the day before his passing. What a beautiful and spiritual day. I highly recommend doing it.
  • Beautiful tribute.
