Spiritual Marche

A journey of meditation among the holiest places of worship in Marche.

An itinerary of inner rediscovery through the most beautiful and lesser-known Churches and Abbeys in Marche, preciously perched in a natural setting that over the centuries homed Camaldolese, Cistercian and Franciscan monks. Thanks to their continuous presence, our region is dotted with spiritual centers, that still open their doors to guests and visitors, just like once they did for pilgrims and wayfarers.

You will cross a world-famous path: the Cammini lauretani, a road that passing through Tolentino, Macerata and Recanati joined Assisi and the Basilica of the Holy House in Loreto, a destination for pilgrims from all over the world. According to legend, it is the Holy House where Jesus used to live, and was flown by angels from Nazareth to Loreto, in a winter night in 1296.

In the Province of Macerata you will visit the Santa Maria a Piè di Chienti Abbay, a clear example of Romanic architecture; San Claudio al Chienti Abbey, characterized by its two cylindrical towers; and Chiaravalle di Fiastra Abbey, one of best preserved examples of Cistercian architecture in Italy.  There you will find a great spiritual center where you can relax and rejuvenate, immersed in the Fiastra Nature Reserve.

You experience these natural hidden hideouts, breathing in the ancient air which is rich with history and silence.
