A journey of faith through the heart of Italy
Routes of Faith project is fascinating and rich tourist trail showcases the cultural highlights of the region; abbeys, monasteries and shrines immersed in the green landscape of Umbria, Lazio and Molise as well as towns and castles, in which we can still find evidence today of the spiritual life and culture experiences of St. Benedict, St. Francis and the Path of the Saints of Molise.
At the root of Christianity and European civilisation
From the VI Century onwards in particular, the monastic movement influenced the course of history, art and culture in Italy and made a determining contribution to the birth of European civilisation.
