Hermitage of the Carceri

An ancient Franciscan place on Mount Subasio, 4 km from Assisi and 800 meters above sea level, in the heart of a forest of centuries-old holm oaks, it is one of the Franciscan sanctuaries guarded by the Friars Minor of the Seraphic Province of St. Francis of Assisi. The word Carceri does not mean “prisons”: it comes from the Latin “carcer”, which means secluded, solitary place, therefore suitable for the life of prayer.
