Eremo di Sant'Onofrio (Hermitage)


"Built by Monks in the 12th Century"

This was built by monks in the 12th Century, partly out of the surrounding rock. It is still a place of pilgrimage today and ancient rituals are performed here. Those who come to cure a stomach ache or a fever go to a hollow which is called the cradle of S. Onofrio as it has two hollows formed because of the pressure of people kneeling there. On the night of the day of Sant'Onofrio, June 12, pilgrims come here early in the morning and there is a procession that goes to the town with the statue of the saint. This place is near the Abbey of San Liberatore in Maiella, not far from the town of Serramonacesca.
