Hermitages and sanctuaries: San Viviano Hermitage

The Blessed Viviano’s Hermitage is situated on the crags of Monte Roccandagia, near the path that leads to the Arnetola Valley from Campocatino. It can be reached only on foot in about 30 minutes. It is a real abri’s sanctuary settled in the rock at about 1090 meters above sea level. In this inhospitable place  Viviano (Viano) led his ascetic life feeding on wild cabbages that miraculously grew abundant on the nude rock walls. The entire population of Vagli is strongly devoted to Blessed Viano become before, protector of shepherds and later, when the local economy changed, of the quarrymen.
