  • A spiritual insight into the times of St Francis - a beautiful quiet interlude in a busy day. Although a few people there we all evidently felt the same peace, people spoke in hushed voice.  more »
  • By chance we had to mass time. It was really nice! Among the most evocative places where Saint Francis lived

  • Live in 20 km from this beautiful and historical place. Always attended at a young age. Later that year, I spent a week in July with the life of the Capuchin Friars. Wonderful experience. About 25 people from all over Italy. There is something very spiritual about that place. More than in other Franciscan sanctuaries like Assisi and La Verna. There is the simplicity of brother Francis.

  • Very spiritual place founded by san francesco d'assisi. Worth a visit if you are attached to the saint.
  • Really nice place to visit, you can drive but it is also a nice walk
  • A charming, beautiful and peaceful place! Best to come with a car or its a long but still possible walk.
  • The pictures are beautiful, yet somehow don't do Le Celle justice. I was a UGA student in Cortona the Summer of 1996. I used to pack a lunch and go to Le Celle to study it was so peaceful and quiet. I guess it is hard to take a picture of serenity and peace.
  • One of the most memorable and peaceful experiences I ever had was spending a solitaire moment at "Le Celle"
