Umbria and the Marches Sights

Cattedrale di San Rufino

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 03/27/2015

Fodor's Review

Saint Francis and Saint Clare were among those baptized in Assisi's Cattedrale, which was the principal church in town until the 12th century. The baptismal font has since been redecorated, but it's possible to see the crypt of Saint Rufino, the bishop who brought Christianity to Assisi and was martyred on August 11, 238 (or 236 by some accounts). Admission to the crypt includes the small Museo Capitolare, with its detached frescoes and artifacts.
