  • We have accessed the site by a beautiful hike overlooking the Gorge. The Chapel is really unusual and built in a large porch, entrance of a cave that passes through the mountain.

  • After the Frasassi caves we ventured to this ascent to the temple ... after a nice uphill walk you arrive at this beautiful rock opening ... fascinating! Only minus the vandalism of the people who ruined everything with the inscriptions on rock and a lot of dirt!

  • You leave your car in the parking lot marked "living Nativity" on a road along the River, and climb on foot for about 15-20 minutes for a lane pretty steep in the first section. Eventually the spettacole reward the small fatigue: from a bow stands the famous octagonal travertine Temple designed by Giuseppe Valadier on behalf of Pope Leo XII, born near in Genga. the temple itself is very large, and it seems spectacularly wedged into the wide mouth of a large cavity that continues and has been equipped with concrete staircases to allow the view from the top. The Interior is simple, neoclassical, almost unadorned, with a copy of the statue of our Lady of Canova. A few dozen meters, partly dug into the rock, is the charming, small Hermitage-medieval church of Santa Maria Infra Saxa (which gives its name to the locality of Frasassi and the famous caves). By visiting these, you can't just help but go look at the Temple in the cave!

  • Fantastic! The isolated mountain temple is known as the "Refuge of Sinners," and acted as a pilgrimage site for those seeking forgiveness. The interior originally held a marble Madonna and Child sculpted by Canova, however the original has been moved to a local museum and a replacement was installed in the temple.
  • Very impressive, the ideal way to visit is by yourself, or with your family, when the silence envelops you and the atmosphere becomes so intimate as to have chills. But they are shivering. For arriver to the Hermitage need to contend with a steep and relatively long but still paved and with a sufficient number of ' RV ', where you can rest. Aside from the extra effort, it is easy to bring a stroller. The last stretch of paved path is almost flat and offers spectacular views over the Gorge and the cliffs, and then you walk into the area occupied by the Hermitage and the small temple in the cave. In front of the latter there is a large clearing balustraded along side which gives overhanging the Gorge, while you can walk behind the temple, in the cave that houses it. My favorite is still the ancient Hermitage of the 10th century, which is built using the rock face. Amazing atmosphere inside. Visit this small Hermitage offers excitement that then, remain graven in the heart: If you happen around here you should make sure not to skip the visit. Even though beautiful, incredibly impressive, but all in all disadvantaged, the area is equipped with a toilet and a small source at the side of the old Hermitage fills bottles and flasks possibly empty along the way.

  • The directions were wrong! To access the Temple need from the little square with the wooden sign living Nativity. And follow up your > Santuario Madonna di Frassasi.

  • A unique place that is all that you do to reach it! I recommend bringing a flashlight so you can see better in the cave.

  • In the heart of the Frasassi Gorge just a few meters from the homonymous caves you can make a discovery that leaves you breathless, the Temple of Valadier. An octagonal domed church built in 1828 to a design by Giuseppe Valadier. Aside from the historical and architectural, where you will find loads of information on the internet, I think it's a lifetime experience for visitors to the caves of Frasassi, not only for the closeness but also because of the spectacular nature of the place. We start from the locatio, actually the temple is located less than one kilometer from the entrance of the caves and on arrival you can find a small parking lot where you can leave your car. You'll know you have arrived when you see the statue of Leo XIII that awaits it almost invites you to climb with a wave of his right hand. The path leading to the Temple of Valadier, as stated by many before me, is 700 metres long and has a significant slope but not impossible, just walk slowly. Along the way, covered with trees for much of the way you can breathe an atmosphere of serenity and peace, typical of the mountain. Along the way I recommend that you carefully observe the cliffs that line the right side of the trail uphill walk if you're lucky you can observe natural waterfalls that are formed due to the presence of rain in previous days. You come to the Temple in less than 30 minutes, if you take a decisive step, otherwise it will take a bit more time but it's worth it. Arrived at the temple after the visit I recommend you hop along the path marked by stones behind it. At the end of this course you will look in its Majesty the work of Valadier, that integrates in one unusual scenario for the more intrepid, fitted with lamp you can take a look at the cave which is located at the end of the path. The sum of this trail behind the Temple click awesome pictures. For people who need, in front of the entrance to the Temple of Valadier there are stairs that lead to the bathrooms, and if I remember correctly they are equipped for the disabled. I recommend that travel this road on days without rain, because it is still a mountain trail and, although perfectly paved, nature can make it less easy to climb for beginners. The experience is free;) Good find.
