The town of Assisi was not what I expected. I guess I go so caught up in the stories about St Francis talking with the animals and being poor and wearing simple cloth, that I hadn't thought about the hubbub that comes with sainthood. You know, the big church getting built and all the art being commissioned and the town building up around the religious center. So here is a glimpse of what the town of Assisi is today. Included are photos of the cathedral, the basilica, the town, the places and the inhabitants (including birds and tourists). Enjoy the peek.
