Holy Valley: The sanctuary of Fonte Colombo

Go for a trekking to the place where St Francis wrote his Rule

Leave a Comment

Fonte Colombo is where St Francis fasted in meditation for 40 days in order to write his third and last Rule, the one that the Church recognised as authentic. He came here three years before his death, when he had already completed his inner journey experience.

When here, visit the chapel of Santa Maria, inside the Sanctuary. St Francis left here a mark that he left in many places he visited – namely the famous Franciscan Tau.
