It is famous for being the home of the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels, a papal minor basilica that contains the Porziuncola, the original chapel of Saint Francis of Assisi. The Porziuncola is where Saint Francis founded the Franciscan order, renounced his worldly possessions, and received the stigmata. It is also where he died in 1226. The basilica was built between 1569 and 1679, following a design by Michelangelo Buonarroti, to protect and honor the Porziuncola and other relics of Saint Francis. The basilica has a majestic dome, a baroque interior, and several chapels and artworks dedicated to the life and miracles of Saint Francis. The basilica is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Assisi, the Basilica of San Francesco and Other Franciscan Sites. It is not only a place of spiritual significance, but also a charming town with a rich history and culture and is also surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, such as the hills of Assisi, the plain of Spoleto, and the Mount Subasio Regional Park. Santa Maria degli Angeli is a town that offers a unique experience of art, faith, and nature. It is a town that invites you to discover the legacy and the message of Saint Francis of Assisi.
