The Sanctuary of San Romedio is one of the most characteristic hermitages in Europe. It rises in Val di Non on the top of a rock spur over 70 meters high.
The Sanctuary of San Romedio is made up of five small overlapping churches, all built on a spur of rock and joined together by a long staircase of 131 steps. Here San Romedio lived as a hermit for many years, according to the legend in the company only of a Trentino bear. The path in the rock that leads to the Sanctuary of San Romedio is one of the most significant cult walks in Trentino. Throughout the year it is possible to book guided tours of the sanctuary (For information, Val di Non Tourist Board: tel. 0463 830133, e-mail: info@visitvaldinon.it) On January 15 of each year, the feast of San Romedio is celebrated with a mass and the traditional pilgrim's dish based on tripe. At the sanctuary there is the stamp for the pilgrim's credential along the Jacopeo d'Anaunia Way.

Getting there

The Sanctuary can be reached by car from the town of Sanzeno. The car park is located at the foot of the sanctuary which can be reached in 5 minutes on foot. During the summer the shuttle bus service is active from the car park at the Al Mulino di Sanzeno restaurant to the parking lot at the foot of the San Romedio Sanctuary. A pleasant alternative is represented by the suggestive path on rock, 3 km long, which connects the Rhaetian Museum of Sanzeno to the Sanctuary, taking advantage of the layout of an old irrigation canal dug into the rock and made safe thanks to a massive parapet. 

Parking

The car park is located at the foot of the Sanctuary which can be reached in 5 minutes on foot or near the Rhaetian Museum for those who venture through the path in the rock.
