This sanctuary lies on a rock. News
about this sacred place date back to 1235-1256,
when Peter from Morrone went along the
Aventino Valley, after he spent some days
in St Angelo Limonano (CB) and in Castel
di Sangro (AQ).
A few years later the Celestinian monks
built a sanctuary and a Monastery in their
founding father's honour. They took care
of it until 1807, when the Order was abolished.
