    ... Order in a small monastery in the 13th century. It is situated right below where he lived in a cave and small dwelling prior to becoming Pope at the age of 79. There was an abbey built on the site which was destroyed by an earthquake so a new one was built in the 18th century. It was deconsecrated in the 19th century and served as a hospital, poorhouse, prison of war and normal prison until 1992. It is most likely there were ...

    Throw in the occasional blue lake and the picture is complete. It was simply stunning. The town was very cultured with a couple of jewellery shops where I treated myself to a ring that was made by the old man who sold it to me. He is the 13th generation of his family to work in the shop. It was fascinating. We also bought a scarf and a wall hanging made from local wool from a charming talented lady.

    ... lovely little town with no one living in it. The palazzo, the playground, the houses all empty. He saw inside a house and it was just as if the family had gone out for the day. Beds, tables, chairs etc all still there.
    We visited the chapel of the monastery first which was built as a Cistercian monastery in the late 11th century. We learnt about a holy man who lived in a cave near Sulmona, not far from here, and became Pope Celestine V in 1294. His ...

    ... It was very interesting through beautiful valleys with villages on hilltops. The road would have cost a fortune to build as it was mostly through tunnels or over bridges. We stopped for lunch at a truck stop type place and ate panini we had bought in a gorgeous little deli in Sorrento. The weather remains warm and sunny, 25 degrees most days.
    We are staying in a monastery called Monestero-Fortezza Di Santo Spirito D'Ocre above the town ...
