Poppi

Poppi is an evocative medieval village, encircled by walls and towers. Inside the walls, we find a charming place; noteworthy is the castle, constructed in the 13th century, and the several churches scattered in the village. One of the hamlet is Badia Prataglia, one of the most known and appreciated towns, in the heart of the National Park of the Foreste Casentinesi. From here, delightful paths lead in the magnificent nature of the valley; in Badia it is worthy a visit the ancient Abbey of Santa Maria Assunta, founded around 986 by Benedictines Monks. The current church has a simple facade and an interessing crypt. Another hamlet of Poppi is Camaldoli, developped around the Monastery founded by the San Romualdo (952 - 1027). The monastery is dated to the 16th century; some kilometer further, we find the Eremo (hermitage). Here live monks too, but they follow a model of solitary life. The hermitage is encircled by walls; you enter in a courtyard, and from here you can visit the places of the building open to the public (there are places only for monks), among which the guest-rooms, the room of San Romualdo, the church and the refectory.
