Roccaporena was the birthplace of one of the most famous among Catholic Saints, Rita of ascia. It's roughly five kms away from Cascia, where the mortal remains of the Saint are exposed for public veneration. I used to walk all the way from Cascia to Roccaporena whenever I visited Umbria. It would take me roughly 45 mins to an hour. The walk is very refreshing and scenic, offering beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Once you reach Roccaporena, you can visit some places associated with the Saint, such as her native house, the miraculous rose garden, the church where she was baptized, and the so-called "Scoglio" --- a cliff which the Saint used to climb to pray. The climb is a bit challenging, but the view from the top is really amazing. There's a Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross) along the way and a small chapel on top. I would highly recommend a visit to this place. It is a spiritually nourishing experience.
