A route that takes place in the midst of nature, demanding in the first part for the presence of the continuous ups and downs between the hills and for the strong ascent to the pass that leads to Calvi dell’Umbria. The stage continues to Aguzzo, the village of Sant'Accursio, Franciscan protomartyr. Along the way you will find the Hermitage of Sant'Urbano (Sacro Speco) where St. Francis stayed until you reach Calvi dell'Umbria, the village of San Berardo that preserves a monumental sixteenth century terracotta crib, unique in Umbria. The stage ends at the Church of Santa Maria Assunta.
