Travel Tips for Norcia

San Benedetto di Nursia, famous saint

by Trekki

San Francesco of Assisi is not the only famous Umbrian saint who founded an order. San Benedetto di Nursia lived even earlier and and is considered to have founded the Benedictine order, at least the principle of monk community. He and his twin sister Santa Scolastica were born in Nursia, today’s Norcia, end of 5th century. After having lived in Rome for a while, he left and lived in a cave near Subiaco, where leventually monastery Sacro Speco was built above the cave. Later, in 529, Benedetto moved to Monte Cassino with a group of followers and founded Montecassino Monastery where he wrote his Regula Benedicti, a 73 chapter long book which are base of Benedict Order.

In Norcia, San Benedetto’s impact is very much visible, although it is definitely less visited than famous San Francesco’s Assisi.

Monti Sibillini

"High-plains drifting"

After a famous black-and-white feature spread in a British national paper - probably the Independent - I decided that this was one of the most enticing landscapes of Italy with its emptiness and soft curved lines.
I actually visited it en route to Greece with my friend Heinrich in July 1995, but he is no walker, and so the high-plains drifting will have to wait for another occasion.

It was my best friend Herve who actually went off in June 1998 to discoer the Plano Alto, to my great envy, after I had a motorbike accident in Florence that put me out of action. This is one of the photos he took from June 1998.

VT member Pallina (living in Reggio-Emilia) has the best VT page on this place and its whereabouts. ...
