Le Celle Hermitage in Cortona


Immerse yourself in the silence that you’ll find at the Franciscan hermitage of Cortona. Here you can contemplate nature and rediscover the joy of inner reflection and prayer.

This is where everything stops and you can get a new lease on life.

A 5km trail leads you out of the historic center of Cortona towards the unspoiled nature surrounding Mount  Egidio. You’ll come upon a stone bridge over a small stream of water that leads to silence.

You’ll catch a glimpse of the Franciscan Hermitage “Le Celle” through the branches. This is a sacred gathering place where Saint Francis of Assisi stayed for a short time.
