Trip Info

Discover the best preserved Medieval Town in the world. A mystic place full of history and traditions. Take your time to live unforgettable moments walking between old palaces and squares, worldwide famous art shops and breathtaking landscapes, in this city also loved by St. Francesco d’Assisi and Dante Alighieri.

Is a medieval abbey, now disused and private property, In the commune (township) of Scheggia e Pascelupo in Umbria, central Italy in the heart of Regional Natural Park of Monte Cucco. The large and almost windowless church is a powerfully austere example of Romanesque architecture. Probably built by Templar Knights, the story of this Church is full of mystery as the grandeur of the building is incompatible with the isolated location. Many historical studies have been done on this church and to visit it we’ll have a Medieval Expert who will explain to you all the secrets behind this unique place.

The monastery of “Fonte Avellana (hazelnut spring)“ is located on the green slopes of Monte Catria (1701 meters) and it’s built at 700 meters over sea level. This imponent monastry was built at the end of the 10th century, around the year 980 when some hermits decided to build the first cells of an hermitage that, after many centuries became this wonderful building. The spirituality of the founding members has been influenced by San Romualdo di Ravenna, Father of St.Benedetto’s congregation. The monastery is famous for it’s library and because a legend says that Dante Alighieri wrote there some chapters of “Divine Comedy”.
