  • Small climb a little ripidina but when you see the rock becomes home and place of prayer. Original moving the altar Vist the guide that we contacted.

  • The wait was long, but it was worth it! We came to Pale several months ago but we could not make the visit to the Hermitage ... This time we booked a guide and we opened a fantasy world, a small church with its outbuildings carved into the rock, a source (unfortunately now dry) also worked in the rock and a history (very well illustrated by Jude super-helpful). A place where silence, peace and meditation are the masters! To get there you need to walk a path (dificilissimo) for about 30 minutes from the town of Pale. Highly recommended!!!

  • Thanks to an excursion organised by the Association "With his face in the Sun" we discovered this location and this shrine not far from home but I honestly did not know. Leave the car in Pale climb for about twenty minutes on a fairly steep path and reach the Hermitage that is embedded in the rock. Usually is closed, if you go by yourself is recommended to arrange the visit after making sure one of the volunteers of the country are available to open. The Hermitage is small but rich in things, in addition to the chapel which has beautiful frescoes is that has been restored after the earthquake of 97, one part is dedicated to what used to be the home of the hermit, while another wing allowed the pilgrims ' exit after passing through the Church. Once you leave the Hermitage you can make a loop back to the country through a path in the Woods where the landscape changes completely and you can admire various waterfalls formed by the river Menotre. Recommended.
