Here are some photos I took back when I was in Italy. Here is a place called Assisi found in the province of Perugia. It is the hometown and final resting place of Saint Francis of Assisi; a UNESCO World Heritage Site; a location in one of those Twilight movies; and is also the hometown of two other saints.
This is the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. In it lies the remains of the famous saint and is also a place of worship and retreat for Franciscans. This is the mother church of the Franciscans like the Church of the Gesu is for the Jesuits.
Here is another picture of the basilica from another side of Assisi.
From the side with the cathedral’s belfry.
What I like about this place is the fact that it has very thick and tall walls that reminded me of medieval movies where there is a siege in the castle. From afar, Assisi looks like an impenetrable fortress porched on top of mountain with a scenice view of the Perugian countryside.
I spent a whole day in this place trying out the different fares that the locals offered. I got a bit tipsy drinking limoncello and got so full with tartufo pasta. A nice old lady taught me the recipe to her gnocchi al tartufato because I kept on praising how good her dish was when I ate at her trattoria. It was a shame that I forgot to take her picture.
that’s all for now. have a great day :)
