Eremo Di Calomini Reviews
It was a very nice and tranquil place to visit. The walk up to it is also very nice and quiet. The church in the cave was interesting, the whole place seems to be so close to nature. more »

Fortunately, the day of our visit the Hermitage was closed, so no we came across vehicles, otherwise it would have been difficult to reach this place. Worth a detour.

Also the neighbouring farmhouse with typical menus of farmed trout with water from the towers.
Go on the other side of the river up the hill for a really nice view.
A must see though driving is a pain. Is barely a one lane so very tight
An impressive sight even from a distance. The Hermitage rock is like an Eagle's nest. The climb is worth. While the place as such radiates a wonderful peace and deep, inside of the small church and the cave Chapel is a little bad cheesy failed. But for those who like... For this, the view from the Hermitage is all the more impressive.
Quiet place near the mountain. Always exudes spirituality and peace. At the entrance to fresh water source that flows from the mount.
On the road from Gallicano leads to Fornovolasco and wind cave, on top, on the right, at the foot of a steep cliff, stands a white religious building which contrasts with the dark color of the rock: this is the Hermitage of Calomini. The ancient building, formerly known as Eremo di Santa Maria ad Martjres, is one of the few examples of cave architecture in Garfagnana: its oldest structure was built using a cave. After the miracle of the statue of our Lady, discovered by shepherds in a cave, that once moved, at night I was back to the place where it had been withdrawn, he thought he'd build on a worthy dwelling place. With the money he had collected himself to sacred image an altar, the Church, all dug into the mountain that was called s. Maria ad Martjres.
