On another stormy day, we took off to Assisi, a religious center, of which San Francisco is a "sister city".I have developed a fascination with doors here. This one appears to be carved out of one solid peice of wood! It resides in the Basillica of Chiesa Nuova.
This is one of the oldest buildings in Assisi, Minerva's Temple from the Roman era.
Round the back of Basillica of San Francesco is the Convent. There are many halls and layers to the cathedral, 4 storeys down rests the saint in his tomb.
At the top of the town, Rocca Maggiore castle looks across the valley.
A highlight for me was walking through this never ending rock corridor.And upon reaching the end of it ascending a stone spiral staircase to this great view.
