At the behest of Pope Saint Pius V (1566-1572), in order to keep the chapels of the Porziuncola, the Transito and the Roseto and other places made sacred by the memory of St. Francis, and welcome the many pilgrims who come to visit them, between 1569 and 1679 the great Basilica of S. Maria degli Angeli was built.

The original project of Galeazzo Alessi (1512-1572) is foreseen by a rigorous structural simplicity, conforming to the Franciscan ideal of poverty. The strong telluric events that shake Umbria in 1832 cause serious damage to the Basilica.

At the end of a long and complex restoration, directed by the architect Luigi Poletti, it was reopened to worship on 8 September 1840.

The façade is radically reworked on a project by Cesare Bazzani, with the intention of conferring a monumentality worthy of the importance of the Sanctuary. This was inaugurated on June 8, 1930 and at its summit an imposing statue of the Virgin in gilded bronze was placed.

Il Museo della Porziuncola è parte integrante dell’itinerario dei pellegrini e dei turisti che dalla Porziuncola, al Transito, alla Cappella delle Rose visitano le memorie di san Francesco presso la Basilica Papale di Santa Maria degli Angeli e offre una sosta di maggior comprensione di questi luoghi avvalendosi di documenti di archivio, di plastici e di ricostruzioni grafiche.Le sale ospitano in successione cronologica le opere che hanno reso famoso il Museo. In particolare: il Crocifisso di Giunta Pisano (1236), primo esempio in Italia di crocifisso patiens in una croce monumentale; il San Francesco e Angeli del Maestro di San Francesco (sec. XIII); una tavola raffigurante san Francesco attribuita al Cimabue; la Madonna del Latte, una splendida scultura in pietra policroma della fine del XIV secolo; un pregevole dossale in terracotta invetriata, opera magistrale di Andrea della Robbia (1475

ASSISI TREASURES AND ST FRANCIS WOOD

ASSISI TREASURES AND ST FRANCIS WOOD - Assisi, Italy

Duration: 4 to 5 hours
Location: Assisi, Italy

From USD
$89.34

Assisi  - 3/4 hours - Walking through olive trees and river.

An intact piece of the Umbrian Countryside a place of harmony and silence at the foot of the great Basilica of St Francis of Assisi; a walk through this landscape becomes an inner journey - one that inspired Michelangelo Pistoletto to create a stunning work of land art.

This is a woodland under Fai protection.

Through a gateway in the wall surrounding the square of the Basilica Superiore in Assisi you enter in a narrow path that leads to a wide  valley floor, at the foot of the city centre.  This is no  ordinary excursion; rather, it is an ongoing, peaceful discovery, a new form of pilgrimage into history and into the sacred, through 64 hectares of nature, amid wooded tracts, cultivated fileds, walls of pink stone, clearings and olive groves - a 64 hectare plot that years of neglect had reduced to a dumping ground, but which FAI has now salvaged in its entierity.

Meeting point with the guide at 10.00 am at Basilica Superiore di San Francesco in Assisi.

Starting of walking tour .

Making your way now into the woodland, surrounded by hornbearn , juniper, maple and downy oak, you come first to the Bed of RiverTescio and, next to it, you can see the evidence of a microcosm inhabited by Benedictine nuns in the 13th and 14th centuries: a convent ( now home to the FAI information point) ; the Romanesque church of Santa Croce; a mill that was operational until the early 20th century ( now a Trattoria serving meals to visitors ); the remain of hospital that treated the diseased and  passing pilgrims; and an ancient 14th - century tower erected to defend and early factory.

Climbing to the top of the tower  is worth the effort, since it will allow you to admire fully the "third Paradise" a piece of land art by renowned artist MIchelangelo Pistoletto , which takes the form of 121 olive trees arranged in a double row to form three large, tangential circles ( of which the central one is the largest) , and featuring a 12- meter - high pole to symbolize the union between heaven and earth. You are invited to make your way around the serpentine path between  the rows, becoming in the process a part of this work, which encourages you to reflect on the potential for peaceful co-existence between mankind and nature, here symbolized by the third sphere - the third paradise - of the title.

Enjoy the breathtaking view of Assisi, the peace of the location, and the style with which we invite you to try our wines and fully appreciate the atmosphere and philosophy of a slow way of life.

Tour by carriage along the vineyard with a local expert

Tasting organic wine ( min. 5) with organic local products including chocholate!

2 hours of relaxing trip by coach and horse to discover the philosophy behind organic cultivation and the vineyards “of geese and horses” (one goose revolution project itmeans we wanted to respect the environment, and combine the love we have for our work with quality production. As a result, we decided to experiment viticulture which has a low impact on the environment. We now have 4 hectares of vineyard where no machines are used, and almost everything is carried out with the help of animals. In 2009 we had the idea of introducing draught horses, because their treading the ground between the vines greatly reduces compacting of the soil compared with tractors, which inevitably destroy the soil structure and reduce its fertility.)

Visit of the winery and wine tasting min. 5 wines  with a board of locally produced cheese and salame.

An expert will be at your disposal for all the time.
