I really love Assisi, I find it so interesting and chockful of beautiful art. Not only in the famous Basilica di San Francesco, but in the streets, in the surrounding hillsides and in the "secondary" or less famous churches such as Assisi's Duomo, also known as San Rufino (one of its front door pictured above.)
And so, I thought I'd throw out a few more random photos from my visit to Assisi last month. The following two are reliefs from above the front doors into San Rufino. According to legend, this church is where St. Francis and St. Clare were baptized 800 years ago..
Assisi's streets can be remarkably steep and fantastically medieval!
Even the small decorations on homes can be very beautiful. I love these dragons!.
And the countryside is so lovely. This is a view of Letizia's terrace at her agriturismo, Alla Madonna del Piatto. The terrace not only boasts her beatuiful lavender, but also looks across the valley to Assisi's stunning Basilica di San Francesco.
And finally, Letizia's gorgeous dog, Google patiently minding his manners while we're indoors in a cooking class!
