Pilgrims have been visiting Assisi for almost seven centuries, and especially the Basilica of Saint Francis after its consacration in 1254.
Assisi is a sister town of Santiago de Compostela in Spain, Betlehem in the Holy Land and San Francisco in the US.
A franciscan itinerary also discovers the Valley of Rieti, from the little convent of Greccio where Francis built the first Christmas crèche to the monastery of Fonte Colombo also known as the Mount Sinai of the Franciscans. In Tuscany, pilgrims go up the mountains to visit La Verna, where Francis in 1224, two years before his death, received the stigmata, Christ’s wounds.
