Assisi Treasures And St Francis Wood
Assisi - 3/4 hours - Walking through olive trees and river.
An intact piece of the Umbrian Countryside a place of harmony and silence at the foot of the great Basilica of St Francis of Assisi; a walk through this landscape becomes an inner journey - one that inspired Michelangelo Pistoletto to create a stunning work of land art.
This is a woodland under Fai protection.
Through a gateway in the wall surrounding the square of the Basilica Superiore in Assisi you enter in a narrow path that leads to a wide valley floor, at the foot of the city centre. This is no ordinary excursion; rather, it is an ongoing, peaceful discovery, a new form of pilgrimage into history and into the sacred, through 64 hectares of nature, amid wooded tracts, cultivated fileds, walls of pink stone, clearings and olive groves - a 64 hectare plot that years of neglect had reduced to a dumping ground, but which FAI has now salvaged in its entierity.Itinerary
