Montefortino - Hermitage of S.Leonardo al Volubrio


The hermitage and sanctuary San Leonardo al Volubrio can be reached  from the Infernaccio Gorge in the Sibillini mountains walking along a trail that goes upwards to the right and passes into a centuries-old beech wood. The hermitage has been rebuilt by the Capuchin friar  Pietro Lavini,  who lived in solitude in the monastery for 25 years in order to bring it back to its  original splendour. The old Priory is one of the oldest and  nicest monasteries in the Marche. In the past it was the seat of an active Benedictine Priory, associated with the Monastery of Santa Croce of Fonte Avellana (PU) from the 12th to the 15th century; at a later date the Priory was assigned to the Camaldolese Hermits of MonteCorona, who kept it until the property passed to the State after the Italian Unification.
