Basilica Santa Maria degli Angeli

The Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, according to the Roman Catholic rite, is located in Assisi, in the hamlet of the same name. It was built in a project of Galeazzo Alessi and with interventions of Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola in the second half of the sixteenth century. On top of the facade of the temple stands the statue in gilded bronze. It has the dignity of the Papal Basilica. Inside there is the Portiuncula chapel where Francis of Assisi gathered in prayer: for this reason this is also the center of Franciscan spirituality.
