Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore

Church Assisi, Italy

The Sanctuary of the Dispossession Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore

The church of Santa Maria Maggiore is the ancient cathedral of Assisi, dating back to the early years of Christianity, built near the Roman walls according to tradition by the bishop Savinio in the fourth century and preserves a crypt in the ninth century. Its past is testified by the fact that it rises above the remains of a Roman building that, according to tradition, would have been the home of the poet Propertius, author of the "Elegies".
