An unusual monastery with an 7th Century facade, situated at the base of an overhanging rock face, conceals a series of underground rooms which accommodate 2 churches, most of the monk’s quarters and an ancient kitchen with larder. These underground rooms have been hand chiselled in the rock by the monks and the parishioners starting from the 7th century.
There is an Agriturismo Ristorante Antica Trattoria dell’Eremita where you can have fresh ‘yellow’ trout from the Trout Farm below.
You can buy fresh Trout from the Farm on the main road.
