  • At the end of the wonderful path of St. Francis and after admiring the beauties of the waterfalls, you arrive the path comes to this little wonderful little church that welcomes, believing tourists and not at the end of a meditation path. Very well served at 30mt there are also bathrooms, very clean, for hikers and you can also refresh it by drinking spring water. The church also has a crypt at the entrance to a book, where guests/visitors can leave their thoughts. It is the right reward for the eyes and spirit after a journey immersed in nature. We're definitely going to do it again.

  • The Chapel of Saints Francis and Clare, carved from the ruins of the ancient castle of Toblburg, is located at the end of the path of the same name, on the highest point of the Tures Forest. The elevated position, very evocative, certainly represents in a symbolic way the last stop of the visitor, who after experiencing the wonder of the waterfalls, thanks the Creator of what he saw in an authentic temple of Nature. Only those who are animated by true faith and will to thank the Lord will have the strength to complete the ascent. In fact, starting from the third waterfall, the route is very challenging: between steep climbs and steep stairs, you will arrive with your breath almost zerobut you will have proved worthy of access to this little spiritual jewel. The Chapel is in fact very poor in architecture, a very small square-shaped stone building. But isn't this the way the Saint of Assisi wanted the Church to be? Nestled in the Creatures he himself had celebrated, almost at one with the surrounding nature, this little church certainly represents the pinnacle of Franciscan thought. Inside it's all wooden: benches, crucifix, altar. Even in the crypt, very poor, you feel that feeling of spirituality that is felt only in a few places in the world, and it is being immersed in this atmosphere that the visitor can truly thank God of the spectacle he created for us in this forest, as seal of his Eternal Love. Visiting this little church⛪, therefore, a true feeling of love for nature is lit up in the heart, the very nature that St. Francis exhaled in his famous song. Because it is only by embracing and learning to respect the environment around us that we can understand God's true and great gift to humanity: the magnificent World that makes us at home and every day amazes with its divine beauty.
