Fodor's Expert Review Cattedrale di San Rufino

Assisi Religious Building/Site/Shrine

St. Francis and St. 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 St. 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.
