Camaldoli hermitage and monastery

This is the right moment to meditate on life, immersed in the natural environment of a Unesco World Heritage Site

Where there is the most beautiful natural environment, you can reach the pinnacle of spirit. This must have been something also experienced by St. Romuald during the early years of the 11th century when he built the Camaldoli Hermitage, the mother house of the Benedictine Congregation of the Camaldolese monks.

A little further away, about 3 km from here, there is the Camaldoli Monastery. Both of these locations are in the province of Arezzo, at a height of approximately 1,100 metres above sea level, inside the Casentinesi Forest, Mount Falterona and Campigna National Park.

At the Camaldoli Heritage and Monastery, the same rule applies, that of the Benedictine monks. The lifestyles of the monks who still live here differ slightly: more attention and focus are put on the community life of the monastery itself; by privileging personal recollection and contemplation during retreats held at the heritage.

The monastery, the pharmacy and the wine cellar

When compared to the hermitage, the Camaldoli Monastery has a more modern appearance and constantly interacts with the contemporary outside world. In fact, congresses, spiritual exercises and discussions with monks are held here.
Inside the monastery, there are two points of interest renowned throughout Italy: the Ancient Camaldolese Pharmacy and the Wine Cellar.

The age-old, extremely laborious studies conducted by the monks, have perfected techniques to produce herbal teas, liqueurs, cosmetics of the utmost quality, that attract thousands of visitors every year from all over Italy.

Nature, Spirituality and ancient know-how that become products of great value: this and much more is waiting for you on your next holiday exploring the Casentinesi Forests!

The Heritage, the authentic charm of spirituality

There are places in which it comes natural to impose silence and respect, almost as if you stopped breathing. This happens when approaching the cells in the Camaldoli Heritage, where even today, there are nine monks who devote their lives to prayer and work, having withdrawn themselves from the outside world.
 

All cells relate to the one in which St. Romuald once lived, the only one that can be visited, and which can be accessed from the church yard. St. Romualdo lived in this cell for about two years. This is a narrow, very simply-furnished room, that enables you to get an insight into the essence of the spirituality of Camaldolese monks. The particular “spiral” structure of the cells is extremely interesting, the result of age-old experiments, aimed at finding the best solution in order to protect themselves from the harsh climate of the Tuscan Apennines.
