Eremo Le Celle Reviews
Merita di essere visitato. Luogo di silenzio e meditazione in un contesto panoramico molto bello. Mi aspettavo però di vedere più celle oltre a quella di San Francesco. Consiglio! more »It deserves to be visited. A place of silence and meditation in a very beautiful panoramic setting. But I expected to see more cells than St. Francis. Council!
Trovo che vietare l’ingresso ai cani in un posto fondato dal santo protettore degli animali sia davvero un controsenso. Dopo aver camminato per due ore lungo un sentiero per giungere all’eremo, ci sia... more »I find that banning dogs from entering a place founded by the holy protector of animals is really a contradiction. After walking for two hours along a path to get to the hermitage, we simply admired it from the outside as a sign forbids dogs from entering. I understand that it is a place of prayer and of historical importance, but my "animal" is much more polite and silent than many people.
Beautiful, peaceful. Lovely trails, some signage is in English. Consult a map if you choose to enjoy the paths.
Beautiful place, but not a lot to do. There's a little shop, but there isn't anyone there, not a lot of parking space !!
