Rocca Minore

1) Rocca Minore

Rocca Minore is a Medieval fortress, located to the right of the prominent and magnificent Rocca Maggiore. Dating back to 1174, this former military construction is much smaller than Rocca Maggiore and is connected to it by a long wall, beneath which there is a secret path.
Porta Cappuccini

2) Porta Cappuccini

Porta Cappuccini is located down the street from the prominent city’s Medieval fortress, Rocca Minore. This gate represents an old historic construction and is one of the eight gates that welcomes tourists coming to visit this wonderful Italian city.
Anfiteatro Romano

3) Anfiteatro Romano

The Roman amphitheater of Assisi is located in Porta Perlici (one of the eight entrances to the city). This ancient structure dates back to the first half of the first century, and the original elliptical amphitheater is still visible between the garden wall that delimits the area of ancient and Medieval buildings.
Porta Nuova

4) Porta Nuova

Porta Nuova is located in the south-eastern part of Assisi, the marvelous city of ancient churches and Medieval buildings. This impressive, old historic construction represents one of the eighth entrances to the city and is a popular tourist attraction.
San Damiano Church

5) San Damiano Church (must see)

San Damiano is a church with a monastery, which was the first monastery of the Order of Saint Clare, where Saint Clare built her community. Perhaps one of the most significant aspects regarding the church was Saint Francis' encounter with Christ. He had been praying at San Damiano, which at the time was a very run down building. One day Saint Francis saw the figure of the Christ crucifix telling him to restore his house. Afterwards, Saint Francis took action to repair San Damiano, although he eventually realized that God's message to him was to restore the Church as a whole rather than literally repair churches, such as San Damiano. The cross from which Christ spoke to Saint Francis is known as the San Damiano cross. It currently hangs in the Basilica di Santa Chiara.
