San Romedio sanctuary: useful information

San Romedio Sanctuary is one of the most distinctive hermitages in Europe. It stands atop a 70 metre high rocky outcrop in the Val di Non. According to the legend, San Romedio lived here with only a bear for a friend.
The hermitage is made up of five little churches stacked on top of each other, all built on a rocky spur and connected by a long staircase with 131 steps. The footpath leading to San Romedio Sanctuary is one of the most significant religious walks in Trentino.
San Romedio Sanctuary is much loved by children and families because of the magnificent bear which lives in the hermitage’s nature reserve. The Trentino bear has long been synonymous with San Romedio. The presence of the bear at the sanctuary derives to an ancient Trentino legend connecting San Romedio and bears.
The San Romedio Sanctuary is also home to the permanent exhibition “San Romedio: one thousand years of history, art and devotion” which brings together precious restored votive offerings dedicated to the Saint with the bear.
