Camaldoli monks founded the hermitage at an elevation of 416 m a.s.l. (documents show that  two hermits from the Camaldoli community of St. Mattia di Murano lived here in 1335). It hosts some Fathers of this order, which follows the rule of St. Romuald, a Benedictine monk born in Ravenna in 950 AD. The hermitage was originally built in wood, but it was completely rebuilt in stone in the 16th century, and it fits very harmoniously with the surrounding environment. The mighty walls enclose 14 cells, which look like little houses consisting of a room to sleep and study, a chapel with an altar, a bathroom and a woodshed; each cell has a fenced vegetable patch outside.
