  • Beautiful place where the mystical you can almost touch. To get there on foot, after a beautiful walk of almost 20 km, was magnificent. But even without having to make too many kilometers, simply take one (or both) ring around the sacred mountain tours to dive into a magical forest and out of time. The only flaw, the excessive presence of tourists on Sunday massed on the square (but in such a beautiful place is obvious, unfortunately ...). Anyway, as I said before, you can simply leave a few hundred meters into the Woods and here peace and silence that captured Francis can be understood and experienced by all ... or almost!

  • The Franciscan sanctuary la Verna is really a place where you can immerse your spirit in contact with nature! Visiting it you can admire the magnificence of nature and human history surrounding it. Really quaint, I recommend it to everyone!

  • This is a beautiful place!!!! It has such rich tradition with Saint Francis where he prayed and received the stigmata. It is here or near here that Saint Bonaventure wrote the Journey into God.
  • I personally liked the Sanctuary, even though its massive structure feels a little sovietic in parts. The visit to the small chapels and the frescoed alley is interesting, as is the view over the valley.
  • I hope one day I could visit La Verna

  • Quiet and nice view. I'll explain why in a Franciscan sanctuary dogs not permitted, not even on the square. But Francis was not pet friendly?
