    The church stands there high and steep, almost repellent and “withdrawn”. The massiveness of the construction and the solitariness of the location heighten it to a widely effective Monument. The architecture has something unusual and unique.

    You will not remember anything alike. The construction connecting the two rooms appears unitary, as if it would be of one piece. This impression is mostly given by the dominant verticals. The façade rises narrow and slender to the heights. The towers span over the lower and upper church. The long windows support this effect.

    The church was, quite obviously, built as the sepulchre of St. Francis. One needed a dignified gravesite for the founder of the order canonized in 1228 with great celebrations in Assisi. One day after the canonization the Pope laid the foundation stone for the church. Surprisingly, they chose for this place a hill on the outskirts of the city. The story that it was the wish of the saint himself to be buried on this site, which should have been the execution site of the town Assisi, is a subsequent invention. They had in fact Francis buried in the city in a small cemetery in St. George, where now stands the church of Santa Ciara.
