San Ginesio – Hermitage of San Liberato

San Liberato was born between 1215 and 1218 in Loro Piceno (Macerata), from a noble and wealthy family: the Brunforte. At the age of 18, just like another great devotee, San Francesco, he left all comforts to dedicate himself body and soul to God. He spent the rest of his life in prayer and meditation at the Hermitage of Soffiano. Still today, the remains of the ancient convent can be seen inside a rocky hollow.
In 1421 the original Church was partly demolished and replaced with a new building, next to which a convent was built and the whole complex was then renamed after San Liberato. The convent, formerly a hermitage, finally became a sanctuary, a source of light, of grace and spirituality. Today, the Friars Minor of the Province of Loreto reside there to welcome many pilgrims going for a visit in search of peace, harmony and a moment of meditation and prayer.
A bit further up the hill is the vast plain called “Prati di San Liberato”, an ideal place for picnics, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea.
