Church of San Damiano
San Damiano is the ideal starting point to better understand the life of San Francesco, it is in fact the place of Francis' conversion, in which the Saint listened to the voice of the Crucifix: "Go and repair my house". He restored the church and adapted the protomonastery for Santa Chiara. Two years before dying, still here, he composed the Canticle of the Creatures.

Sanctuary of Rivotorto:
The Sanctuary of Rivotorto which houses the Sacred Hovel (sec. XIII): a very modest shelter chosen by San Francesco as a place of residence for himself and his first companions. It is defined by many as "the cradle of the Franciscan fraternity".

To the west of the Sanctuary, about 1 km away, are the churches of S. Mary Magdalene (sec. XII) and San Rufino d’Arce (sec. XII). To the east, about 2 km, the Church of SS. Trinity (Sec. XII) and towards the city the Church of S. Giovannuccio (sec. XVI).

Francesco himself indicated the lower hill of the city, once called Collis inferni, as the place where he wanted to be buried. That hill was renamed Collis paradisi and on it was built the basilica formed by two superimposed churches and the crypt where the remains of San Francesco are kept. Note the decorations with frescoes by Cimabue and Giotto.

Basilica of Santa Chiara:
It began in 1257 with the construction of the church and the adjoining convent of the Poor Clares, who had lived in S. since 1212. Damiano. Built next to the church of San Giorgio, where Francesco was temporarily buried and where the Saint was buried on 12 August 1253.
