|Spirituality, art, nature: these
are the major characteristics of this place.
Certainly spirituality has been
the powerful trace since San Francesco, after the donation of the mount by Conte Orlando
in 1213, has lived in this place in a solitary and contemplative way.
One of the famous
Chapels, The Stimmate one, at the end of a long corridor, still keeps the rock of the
miracle and in another wet cave a rock is venerated as the bed of the Saint.
Art here is a
continuous reference to the spirituality which is in the air: from the Tuscan lines of the
'400 Basilica to the Robbiane Terracotte of the Annunciazione and the Nativity.
The whole mount with
its vegetation is a Sanctuary: it is full of paths for those who want to get in contact
with nature in silence, admiring the landscapes, sometimes almost unreal, like the Sasso
Spicco, a huge rock which is linked to the mountain just by a corner. However the Convent
and the lodge offer the pilgrims a comfortable place to enjoy their staying.
