  • This monastery has enviable artistic qualities and its history we can positively affect but what better note is its religious importance. Remember the presence or a walk of several men then become saints and the climate that reigns within, in the silence of the visit, it is extraordinary. Open throughout the day and also easily accessible by car, I think lugo not to be overlooked when you are around

  • This small convent in the heart of the tuscan mountains is a place for meditation and contemplation.. the silence and the beauty makes you appreciate this world.  more »
  • Montecasale is a rarity. After a long, narrow access road through the chestnut woods near Sansepolcro, the Hermitage with a wonderful small monastery from the 12th century rises spontaneously. A wonderful place to go in themselves as well as to see the beautiful but harsh landscape of the Tiber Valley. A conversation completes certainly the experience for every visitor with a Capuchin monk.

  • The Hermitage of Monte Casale owes its fame to Saint Francis, that he had a gift in 1212 and making you dwell more times: we stopped for the last time in 1224, when performed her last journey from his beloved rock de La Verna in Assisi. The Hermitage is situated on the old road, passing from Alpe della Luna Mountains, bore from Sansepolcro to brands over the cows. The Hermitage of Monte Casale has undergone over the centuries various alterations, renovations and expansions. In the Church, in the spine of the high altar, walnut, carved by a friar in the 17th century, is a statue of Madonna with child dated as 13th century era. In the small harvest ceramic squares are 1600 choir depicting episodes of the life of St. Francis.
