The town of Assisi in the region of Umbria is steeped into history and has history pouring out from its every nook and crevice. It has its roots in the Roman conquests and until the 13th century the town was considered to be a part of Rome.
The famous bishop called Rufinus went ahead and evangelized the people who lived here in 238 AD. Then it was attacked by Totila in 545 Ad and it went on to become a part of the Longobard and Frankish Duch territories.
Then in the 11th century it was able to declare itself independent and shake off the yokes of bondage. This was mainly of the Ghibelline faith. The in 1198 without any imperial vicar ruling it the people took advantage and attacked Conrad von Lutzen.
This led to the taking place of a battle against Perugia and the battle was known as the battle at Ponte San Giovanni. Perugia took several prisoners after the battle and one of them was the 22 year old Giovanni who was also known as Fancesco. He was a writer and came from an illustrious family. After he was taken prisoner he decided to file for a knighthood and participated in the crusade that was led by Waler de Brienne. However, he was forced to give this up due to an illness. This was the time that Franscesco decided that it was high time that he changed his life. Therefore, he renounced all of his riches and prayed at the San Damiano. This is when a vision appeared in front of him and asked him to restore the church in the year 1205.
In the year 1208, Franscesco was gifted a chapel by the Benedictines. In the year 1212 he founded a chapel for Chiara di Favarone di Offreduccio, and later in 1221 a third order in Cannara. This is when the foundation stone for the church was laid and construction began on it.
In the year 1316 the outside walls of the town were enlarged. Then suddenly the city of Assisi began to decline because of the Black Death plague. You can go for car hire in Spain if you want to explore the city and there are lots of car hires companies so you can easily hire a car in Assisi.
