ASSISI: In the footsteps of St. Francis
The little original church of St. Mary of the Angels at the Portiuncula.
After zealously working to reconstruct the little churches of San Damiano and then St. Peter's, Francis skipped down to this church.
It was here that St. Francis began the life of radical simplicity and took to his side his first 'followers' or companions.
This modern day church, built all around St. Mary of the Angels, is among one of the largest in the world.
