“Must See in Cortona!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Quaint, beautiful Monastery...must see it while you are in Cortona. Quite an experience to attend mass if you are there on a Sunday.

“A Must See...”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Eremo Le Celle is such an interesting place, both in the way and the place it was built, and because of its history. Just walking through he passageways causes one to stop and reflect. It is a must see if you are in Cortona. My wife and I still talk about it. We will go back when we return to Cortona.

“Serene and Beautiful!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We were taken to this site by our wonderful agriturismo host, Lapo, at Casale della Torre.

When I walked onto the grounds I felt a peaceful serenity.
The waterfall was breath-taking, and when we walked inside we heard the monks chanting,
which enriched the experience.

The small cell of St. Francis was humbling and I felt I could have stayed here for days, meditating and getting lost in the tranquil ambience.

If you go to Cortona, you must not miss this!

“Ideal place to rediscover faith and hope, authentic atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The "Eremo Le Celle" is one of the places where S. Francesco lived. It is a wonderful hermitage in the middle of the nature, beside a river. The place is not only beautiful but the atmosphere is also authentic. Also the town, Cortona (which is very close), deserves definitely a visit. We have spent about a week in the Eremo Le Celle, together with other young women/men (about 20-35 years old) in occasion of a religious retreat. It was an amazing experience to live together with the Capuchins, to pray with them, laugh, eat, talk, discuss, do some manual work together. We really had the opportunity to disconnect from our daily routine and the many distractions that prevented us from thinking and prayer. We rediscovered important values and hope for our future. Definitely recommend it to everyone, especially to young people and couples.

“Good for a brief escape from the town ”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Lovely place to visit when in Cortona. Great views, tranquil setting and interesting history. The drive is quick and easy but we've heard the walk there is a little more challenging. Would love to have done but too much when 6.5mths pregnant!
