Reviewed 20 December 2014

Opened once again in 2014 after sustaining damage during the 2009 Earthquake in L'Aquila, this hermitage, seemingly attached to the side of Morrone Mountain, is a must see. This is really a 13th century monastic complex built into a series of mountain grottoes; Besides the obviously visible sanctuary there is a cave retreat thought to be the mountain refuge of Pietro di Morrone, Pope Celestine V. It was in this place that Pietro received the news that he was elevated to Pope on July 5, 1294; he then served Mass in nearby Sulmona and received the Papal Tiara in L'Aquila.
Follow the corridors that wind through the complex, and enjoy the astonishing views!
To arrive, follow the signs to the parking area below the hermitage. There is a short and slightly challenging climb to the complex, and you will want to wear a pair of sturdy walking shoes or light trekking boots.
