Rieti and the Holy Valley

Rieti and the Holy Valley

Rieti is the place where Saint Francis was inspired for his encyclical "Laudato si" and where he started his spiritual journey through the Holy Valley. Everyone can travel on his steps today, walking on a green trekking trail and visiting four different significant sanctuaries. Get your pilgrim's passport here in Rieti and go for your walk, 20 km per day and you will cover the whole pilgrimage in four days! It goes in a circle, Rieti is both the start and finishing point, at the end you will get a final certificate. It is a great journey that everyone can take!
