PERUGIA AND ITS FRANCISCAN SITES

written by Chiara Guzzetti

Ostuni città bianca

In Perugia, the memories of the life of St. Francis are tied to the beauty of the Umbrian capital, which has some of the most beautiful sights of Umbria and is presented as a jewel of Italian art from Etruscan times to the present day.

In town you can visit the church of San Francesco al Prato, the Oratory of San Bernardino, the Convent of St. Agnes, the subject of oratory of San Francesco, the convents of Montemalbe and Monteripido.

The route continues to Collestrada,which retains a memory of Saint Francis: a small building that was a prison to the saint.
