CONVENTO OF ST DAMIAN-ASSISI

CONVENTO OF ST DAMIAN-ASSISI

In 1205, in its dilapidated old oratory, the Christ on the crucifix came to life and spoke to Francis, saying, “Rebuild my church.” The Saint took the command literally reconstructing the little church with his own hands. The church later became a favorite retreat for Francis and his followers and here St. Clare died in 1253.

Where: Assisi
