Duomo di San Rufino

Duomo Assisi, Italy

Visit the oldest church in Assisi Duomo di San Rufino

Many mistakenly believe that the Cathedral of Assisi is the Papal Basilica of St. Francis. Nothing more wrong ... in Assisi the Cathedral is on the opposite side of the city (a little above the Basilica of Santa Chiara) and is consecrated to San Rufino martyr Bishop of the third century. The richly carved façade is one of the highest examples of Romanesque art. The interior, renovated in the sixteenth century, preserves the baptismal font in which St. Francis, St. Clare and, according to tradition, also Frederick II of Swabia were baptized.
