La Verna e Camaldoli
The monasteries of La Verna and Camaldoli consecrate the Casentino history. Spiritual centres of the Franciscan Order and the first and Benedictine second, these are two places to visit as they are the link between the natural environment and spirituality. A La Verna St. Francis lived the last years of his life and where he received the stigmata. In Camaldoli, in the magnificent forest, St. Romuald founded the community based on his life as a hermit and community together.
