Why visit CASCIA?

Because it is the birthplace of the "Saint of the impossible", Saint Rita, lived in the first half of the XVth century that attracts every year many devotees who come,in need of graces.
Because it is possible to visit the Augustinian monastery that welcomed it after the death of her husband and subsequent conversion where there is still the initially dry vine, whose care was entrusted to the abbess of the monastery, the rose plant that bloomed in winter on expressed desire of Rita dying and the house of the bees that appeared on his bed of birth and death.
Because visiting Cascia means, being a few kilometers from ROCCAPORENA, the birthplace of Santa Rita, where the faithful can still climb the hundreds of steps that lead to 800 meters in height to pray on the same rock of the Santa.
