  • Very large church, perhaps too much and too ornate. The Porziuncola inside, though, is pure magic. Also noteworthy is the adjoining Franciscan bookshop, very well stocked and very tidy.

  • It is located within the itinerary of the visit of Saint Mary of the Angels and in addition to retracing the places linked to its spiritual life there are also the remains of the primitive cells of the friars. After tasting the mystical atmosphere of the Porziuncola you just have to discover the garden of Roses. You breathe peace!
