  • Place of peace and prayer, this shrine stands on Monte Rainiero, inside the wood of oak trees, approximately 549 meters above sea level and is one of the four Franciscan sanctuaries that surround the so-called way of St Francis in the sacred Reatine Valley. Seems to owe its name to the Saint, who saw in the Woods, not far from the sanctuary, the doves drink to a source (hence the name Fons Colombarum). Here St. Francis in September 1223, created the final draft of the rule of her order, which is valid for all the Friars Minor and always here, in 1225 a year before his death, the Holy underwent a painful operation that had to heal from serious eye condition that made him almost blind (disease contracted in Egypt during the fifth crusade): it is said that shortly before the operation, which consisted of the veins by red-hot iron cautery, ranging from ear to eyebrow, Saint Francis prayed '' brother fire '' to be kind and gentle with his flames and that after that the operation took place without the Holy felt no pain at all, much to the astonishment of all ... Just arrived, we are located in a small square, on which there is the Church of Saints Francesco and Bernardino of Siena, to the left of which is the descent leading to the sacred cave and along which are located before the chapel of Magdalene (with traces of af fresh, the 14th and 15th centuries, that adorned) then, further down the chapel of San Michele Arcangelo and still further down the sacred cave: a long narrow crack in the rock with a simple wooden cross, the holiest place in the complex. To visit ...

  • A church rebuilt completely with a light plaster which covered pretty much everything and even aluminium radiators in a church which dates back to the stages of San francesco, in practice an abomination (although I imagine the convenience during winter). Only positive note, on the side walls there are several valuable wooden works. Original stone altar surmounted by a wooden Christ of discrete, but not at the time.

  • Very nice and quaint sanctuary, as well as throughout the outer contour in the countryside. The peace and serenity that are felt by visiting the Church, the cloister, the caves and all places adjacent make this one of the most evocative Franciscan Sanctuary. It is here that St. Francis wrote the rules. If possible, try to attend a guided tour (I used by accident and it was worth it). To visit!

  • Beautiful experience. You touch the faith by hand. Everything speaks of love. It's not hard to let go with your mind and see St. Francis present in those places that still there calms.

  • This Franciscan sanctuary, sacred place par excellence, has said "the Sinai Franciscan", because here Saint Francis of Assisi in 1223, he received from Christ the definitive rule of the order of Friars Minor.

  • Here the Saint Francis finishes its rules and underwent surgery on his eyes with red-hot metal. It is a nice place for reflection.
