Leave a Comment

The Sanctuary of Santa Maria della Foresta is where the walks of St. Francis and St. Benedict meet. It is a beautiful place 480 meters above sea level where St. Francis performed the miracle of the grapes.

Here is a vegetable plot kept like a wonderful garden by the people of MONDO X community, producing also some excellent Sagrantino wine. Pilgrims can find here hospitality, don’t miss a visit during your trekking through the Holy Valley.
