Hidden gem

Simple, lovely, charming. Such a peaceful atmosphere, on recent visit adjacent garden was open and was enthusiastically greeted by German nun caretaker. Quiet oasis amid the bustle.

Simple yet beautiful church
May 2018 • Couples
We visited this church in May of 2018. It’s a quiet and solemn church, we were the only ones there when we visited. The church dates back to twelfth or thirteenth century and with it’s nearly bare stone interior it is quite moving in its simplicity. Worth a visit!

Special Sacred place
Oct 2018 • Couples
We entered this church after visiting other more grand churches in Assisi. The simplicity and quiet found in this church invited me to stay for hours. There is a special sacredness that surrounds this ancient building tucked in amid a garden and other medieval structures. A definite must see

Simple and beautiful suroundings
Aug 2018 • Couples
Wirth a visit if you are in assisi anyways. The church is very small and build in a simple way and the decorations are sparse. The area arond the church offers great views and a nice little staircase. When Francis died, in the neighbour town, the bells of this chuch alledgedly rang by themselves.

A Beautiful Little Church and a Refreshing Break from Crowds
Apr 2018
We changed upon this lovely little Romanesque church (1050 - 1150). It has also been called rustic Umbrian because of the simple lines. It is a nice break from the larger churches in Assisi and just the kind of church St. Francis would have liked. Very personal and restful experience. Worth finding to sit for a few minutes and collect your thoughts.

Real Franciscan spirit
Jun 2018 • Couples
It´s a small and simple Romanesque church, like it was in the times of St. Francis, just the condition of the frescoes look to be worse (shame).
It is a backstreet gem, without noisy people, the best place to feel spirituous and pray in silence. I simply loved it and feel glad we didn´t skip it just to see the main big churches only. It´s worth to pay a visit.

Simple contemplative church
Sep 2017 • Couples
We visited this very simple church in September 2017. After the extravagant beauty and bustle of the Basilica of St Francesco, it provided a welcome spot of tranquility- truly balm for the soul until a noisy pair of visitors arrived snapping photos. Oh well you have to share.

Lovely simple and quiet church tucked away on a back street
May 2018 • Couples
This small church had been recommended for a visit and we were pleased we took the time to follow through. Very simple, ancient and still used. An oasis of peace and calm (at least on the day we visited).

SAINT STEPHEN
Mar 2018 • Couples
This 12th century church is very plain, almost austere. The façade consists of an entryway above that is a window. Inside the church, which maintains its medieval appearance, is a single nave with small windows for lighting. There are 2 frescos adorning one wall, one subject is St. Francis and St. Stephen with the Madonna, the other is just a partial of the crucifixion. It also has the most unique confessional I have ever seen. There is no bell tower but 3 bells reside in a small gable that rises above the church roof.

If you found this review helpful, please give a thumbs up.

We have visited many wonderful places and this spot is terrific. Peaceful and tranquil. We see why St. Francis loved it.
