CASCIA

 

 

The origins of Cascia date back to Roman times. However, it is between the 14th and 15th century that Cascia was illuminated by the presence of its most illustrious personage, Saint Rita, the nun that rendered Cascia famous all over the world.

Nowadays this Saint, who is known to grant wishes, is venerated in the Sanctuary which has been dedicated to her memory.

Besides its medieval buildings and famous churches, Cascia is also well known for its beautiful surroundings, perfect for those who want to have a full immersion in an uncontaminated nature.
