Desert hermitage in Varazze

A botanical path surrounds the VII century Monastery, rich in Mediterranean species and trees typical of mountain woods, together with many European and extra European ornamental plants.
In the thick of the woods there are seven chapels called “Romitori” in which the friars spent time in solitude and penitence.
