Chiusi de La Verna - La Beccia - La Verna - Penna Mount - Fondo della Melosa - Chiusi de La Verna Superb trapezoidal-shaped rocky cliff that rises from a sea of ​​clay, Verna Mount is first of all a sacred place, inextricably linked to the memory of San Francesco, then it is a cornerstone of culture and art, but also reserves unique opportunities for the hiker. In fact, the three things can overlap: the most beautiful access to the Sanctuary and for a visit (be it religious or historical-artistic-cultural, with all the possible nuances) remains on foot, starting from the town of Chiusi. After all, until 1926, the year the carriage was opened, it was like that for love or strength and until then entire generations of pilgrims had ascended the mountain like Francesco and his companions, that is, on foot. Even today, walking in these places - along the ancient mule tracks, that knew the footsteps of these forerunners, in the enchantment of the forest and in the shadow of the most beautiful cliffs imaginable - is an experience not to be missed.
