HISTORY OF ROMANESQUE ARCHITECTURE
SAN FRANCESCO No.1
: San Francesco, Assisi, Italy; 1228-53, 1232-36(upper church)
- San Francesco at Assisi is generally categorized as a Gothic architecture because it uses mostly Gothic elemets.
But it seems that the impression and the spirit of the architecture is really Romanesque.
Especially the Bell Tower is following Lombardian style in 11th-12th century. Lombardia is a birth place of Romanesque architecture in northern Italy.
- The basilica of San Fransisco at Assisi, built at the birth place of Saint Francis(1182-1266), is one of the important sites of Christianity.
