E' forse il più famoso (e turistico) dei 4 santuari, veramente ben tenuto e frequentato. C'è un parcheggio gratuito, non grandissimo, sulla strada, vicino alla statua di San Francesco.

There is free parking, not great, on the road, near the statue of St Francis. Then continue on foot along a steep staircase but not as long. In the lower part of the sanctuary you can see the ancient rooms: the grotta del Santo, the former dormitory of the monks with their tiny cells (and notice the height of the pass door), the refectory. Then it goes to the Church, on the first floor where there is a permanent exhibition (and original) of Nativity scenes from around the world. To see!show original

Every time I get excited to step on those boards worn, tap those walls and breathe the mystical atmosphere of Saint Francis of Assisi. After leaving the car in a comfortable but not very big parking lot leads to the Hermitage by climbing a steep but short staircase. The route plan to visit the place where the Saint saw a cave he got the idea to represent us the Nativity of Jesus, way back in December of 1223. Continuing the tour you can admire the old dormitory with the tiny cells of the friars (among them that of s. Francis, s. Bernardino and St. Bonaventure) and the refectory with the choir. At this point we enter the Church of St. Francis, with a permanent exhibition of Nativity scenes from different parts of the world. Magic atmosphere by breathing deeply and ever and contemplative silence.show original
