  • I was enchanted by the lovely place with an unusual peace, quiet and thoughtful with a unique religion that allows the visitor to grasp intimist aspects. Jewel of the Italian artistic and spiritual heritage. The Hermitage of Saint Albert of Butrio also saw illustrious visitors, like Frederick Barbarossa and Dante Alighieri, and many well known characters, as Caesar Pisano, better known as Frate Ave Maria, who lived there for over forty years, leading a life of prayer and penance. But what most intrigued me is a legend very curious and linked to the gossip of the years 1300 mystery that envelops the eremo. It seems that there have been buried King Edward II of England, a mystery hard to unravel as in 1300 the gossip were covered. Legend has it that the King is not in fact dead at Berkeley, but he managed to escape, living the rest of their years in exile. This story, whose veracity is disputed, is also listed in a document of epoch, the letter written by a priest stationed in Avignon to King Edward III. The letter from the priest Avignon Emanuele Fieschi († 1349). It was written by Edward III of England around 1337. Says that when he was arrested and imprisoned in Kenilworth Castle and Berkeley Castle in 1326, he escaped, disguised as a servant and reached, after many wanderings the Hermitage of Saint Albert of Butrio, at Ponte Nizza. lived the rest of his life as a hermit. The legend is taken up by the Australian writer Ivan Fowler in "Edward, the mystery of the King of Auramala" (the King is alive), which imagines fled to Pavia. Remarkable garden, go when it is spring. Remember to switch from herbal shop and Apiary. Sooner or later I will make a historical research ...
