Francis talking to the birds and, below, a marble slab on which is engraved: "In this place where St. Francis taught the praises of God the Creator to his little sisters, the birds, telling them you neither sow nor reap, God feeds you and gives you the rivers and springs, and God gives you the mountains and valleys for your refuge and the tall trees to make your nest and they with wonderful songs he shared out to proclaim to the world the word of renewed life in the faith of God's providence."
Crossing a gate and descending a few steps it is possible to reach a small altar.
The shrine is set in a beautiful landscape; from here begins a small path that according to tradition seems to coincide with the one followed by St. Francis when, after preaching in Cannara, he headed towards Bevagna.
