  • You have to arm yourself with plenty of Christianity and a pious soul in order to understand how around celestinian and their founder Pietro Da Morrone survived in small cells carved into the rock of the Hermitage Sant'Onofrio to Morrone located half of the slopes of Mount te Morrone above historical artifacts excavated dedicated to Hercules in fraz. Badia in estate of Sulmona. The building easily accessible via a footpath that zigzag on the steps carved into the rock, with a nice non-slip shoes and stick, the ascent takes about half an hour and you arrive at the building that seems grafted into the mountain leads to portico consisting of arches and adjacent to the Valley with a breathtaking view, you access the top entering the Church has a wooden ceiling 1400 with a stone altar consecrated by the same Celestine V, 15th century frescoes depicting the walls with Christ the King and St. John the Baptist on the right and on the left a corridor which leads to the cells where men slept the brave monks, no heating in the humidity of the waters that flow from the rocks, identified as the cells of the old Hermitage, where Pope Celestine V and also disciple Blessed Roberto Da Salle. In the oratory behind the church you can admire the frescoes of the thirteenth century. XIII by Gentile da Rocca and left pictures of Celestine V in papal robes, with the barrel vault completely stellata. Underneath the Church leads to the cave where he used to gather in prayer Pietro Da Morrone and where medicinal and miraculous water springs abundant considered for joint pain. In this environment you reco in 1294 the King Charles of Anjou and his son Charles Martel to announce the investiture as Pope in Pietro Da Morrone, and Hermitage in 1925 Pope Celestine V took refuge there after the great refusal, and where he was imprisoned by the new Pope Boniface VIII. It is an outstanding monument to spirituality and extraordinarily beautiful and special, you collect a large number of visitors, even those who come to ask great things and of another size, long counters one can see the many writings and diaries of visitors coming from 5 continents.

  • It's worth the climb up here is to learn about the history of Celestine is to find a place away from the daily grind. The Hermitage is full of awesomeness, well maintained and from here you can enjoy a unique panorama of the peligna Valley.
