From the apartment is just 30 minutes by car.
The beautiful complex of San Bartolomeo in Legio and Santo Spirito a Majella survives in the heart of this “hermit mountain”, camouflaged against the rock where it was built. The hermitage of San Bartolomeo, at 600 metres above sea level, is located midway down the slope, below a wide erosive ledge. Its origins are prior to 1000 and it was rebuilt in the 13th century on the initiative of Brother Pietro Angeleri, the future Pope Celestine V, who lived here in 1274−76. The hermitage of Santo Spirito, just 1,000 metres further ahead, is set in thick beech-woods.
San Bartolomeo is the departure point for a pleasant walk; Santo Spirito is reached by an asphalt road through woods and rocks. Both are on the Sentiero dello Spirito, one of the longest trails in the Park.
