relevance for the project

It is well preserved, it is relevant both for architectural and environmental issues, it is relevant for touristic routes.


Eremo delle Carceri is a hermitage complex located on the Monte Subasio, four kilometers above Assisi.
This place is ideal for the contemplative and monastic life also because of the presence of natural caves. In the 13th century, Saint Francis of Assisi frequented this place to pray and contemplate as other hermits before him did. The original hermitage core was constituted by St. Francesco’s cave, the complex has been subsequently extended between the 13th and the 14th centuries with the construction of a chapel and some spaces for everyday life.
