This little church and monastery, partly built into the cliff side, is a little gem which always leaves me wondering how on earth they did it. The church itself is small and very ornate; a little too much so for me, until I think of how the monks managed to decorate the ceiling. The views from the door, and everywhere else on the site, are spectacular and its elevated position make it a welcome place to visit in the very hot weather. The old chapel, a few steps from the church, is a place of calm and contemplation; very simple and inspirational. There are a few monks still living here; they are part of an enclosed order and I would suggest that any visitors respect their areas and not go into the cloisters even if the doors are open.

There is an agriturismo very close where you can get something to eat and drink, enjoy wonderful views and even stay.

This is such a tranquil place to visit up in the hills with breath taking views.
We have visited twice; once approaching it on foot through the woods from above and once by driving up from Gallicano. There is parking available outside the Hermitage grounds and a toilet available within the grounds.
The Eremo di Calomini consists of a working monastery and two churches - one built in a cave in the rock face and a separate ornate church building (one might say 'over the top' ornate). The site doesn't take long to explore but it is well worth a visit and is a calm and relaxing place in which to rest awhile.
There is an excellent restaurant very near to the Hermitage which serves food/ meals from 13:00 until 16:00 - a great place to eat.

I have visited this restaurant twice in the last month and the antipasti is superb, white wine cold and crisp. On both occasions I had the grilled trout which was fresh and perfectly cooked. The service is efficient and friendly and the restaurant is in a stunning position and very reasonably priced - highly recommended

The menu at the Eremo has hardly changed over the 12 years we have been visiting. The food is really good for lunch although the menu is limited. The restaurant is run by a husband, wife and daughter who use the profits to support a school and other projects in Rwanda, this alone should encourage people to support as well as the amazing position and views

...healthy distance to oneself. When you are on the way from Grotta del Vento to Vergemoli do not forget visit Eremo Di Calomini.
You will see the monastery just glued to the huge vertical rock. Sit down with the pensiveness, contemplate the nature vastness vs little, silent monastery and quiet place. Recommended for anybody from present crazy world.

We headed up the long narrow winding road only to find Eremo Di Calamini closed.
We were advised that it would be open as did the sign on the gate so we were very disappointed.

It was a very nice and tranquil place to visit. The walk up to it is also very nice and quiet. The church in the cave was interesting, the whole place seems to be so close to nature.

This hermitage was originally built into the rock face in around 1000AD, since then it was enlarged several times. The white painted exterior makes an impressive view from the road down below in the valley.
Even if not religious, the historical and scenic value of the place will interest you. The views are really breath-taking- forested mountains everywhere!
We arrived at 4PM and were lucky the man was just opening the gate, the hours are not consistent so phone ahead to be prepared, otherwise it will be likely closed.
Use a sat nav to find it and prepare your own research.
