Welcome house Benedettine SAN GIUSEPPE in Assisi (Perugia)
Built in the 12th-13th centuries, it has had a history that is not easy: closed during the Napoleonic period, it has progressively resumed its activity.
The enclosure of the Nuns who are resident there is no longer as rigid as before, so the religious lead a less isolated life where space is given to hospitality and spiritual relationships with the laity.
The religious complex formed by two Churches: of S. Paolo and S. Apollinare, which in ancient times were separated by a small road.
S. Paolo has a beautiful rectangular door with a raised arch lunette.
S. Apollinare has an arched portal in the center, dominated by a rose window with small columns and arches.
Inside the Monastery there are numerous frescoes, among which St. Francis receives the stigmata, from the Umbra school (XV century), and an annunciation and crucifixion attributed to Puccio Capanna.
