Eremo Sacro Speco di San Francesco
Narni, Italy

About 14 km southeast of Narni a little way beyond Atrocanto, you will find the Convento di Sacro Speco. The church and cloisters here were founded in 1213 by Saint Francis. The saint often spent time in a cave near here in order to pray. There is a story attached to the place whereby he once took ill here and was visited by an angel who invoked beautiful violin music to soothe him. The whole place has a mystical feel about it.

The Eremo Sacro Speco di San Francesco has a Facebook page.
