ASSISI Art and religion - Eremo delle Carceri


The first nucleus consisted in a chapel with several caves around, at a height of 791 m on the slopes of the Mount Subasio in a splendid ilex-wood.



St. Francis and his disciples retired here for their prayers and meditations.

In 1400 St. Bernardine of Siena erected a small convent and the church of S. Maria delle Carceri, which enlarged and incorporated the previous chapel.

Next to it is located the Cave of St. Francis.

You may take a suggestive walk through the ilex-wood along the caves of the hermits.
