A scenic route from the source of the river Aventino leads to the Hermitage of the Madonna of the altar. This monastery, fortified and perched on a rock, was built in what is considered the first resting place of Pietro da Morrone at the beginning of his spiritual journey. An interesting route for fans of Herpetofauna.
