  • 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!

  • 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 !!
