Full description of the tour

Escape from the crowd to discover the beautiful surroundings of the Lazio region, you can spend unforgettable moments in Subiaco and its monasteries.

Visit this amazing little town with so much to offer.

In the province of Lazio it is an excellent destination for a trip outside the usual patterns, because you will discover all the wonderful features of Subiaco. First of all the Shrines… Hidden, like a precious gem, between the rock walls of Mount Taleo near Subiaco, in the hinterland of Lazio, the Sanctuary of Sacro Speco overlooking the valley below.

For almost a thousand years, this natural treasure and architectural preserves the mysteries of Benedictine spirituality and is a place of pilgrimage. The “cave” alludes to the cave, which is still available, where the Young St. Benedict of Norcia spent time as a hermit in the early sixth century.

It was after that period of spiritual recollection that the saint founded the first monastic communities along the valley of the river Aniene, giving way to Western monasticism.

These are a Spectacular collection of religious buildings. The lower monastery is dedicated to St. Scholastica, sister of Benedict, the saint who lived as a hermit in a cave around which will develop the upper monastery. Perched on multiple levels and decorated with admirable frescoes this place is still full of spirituality.
