Poggio Bustone: Saint Francis Begins His Mission of Peace
Poggio Bustone Sanctuary
"Good day, good people!"

According to tradition, this is how Saint Francis greeted the people of Poggio Bustone when he entered the Rieti Valley in 1209.
One rediscovers the simplicity and joy of this greeting climbing the road that leads to the sanctuary enveloped by the same untouched nature that Saint Francis saw and loved. The Sanctuary is surrounded by verdant woods and looks out onto a mystic panorama: the splendid Lakes Lungo and Ripasottile Natural Reserve.
It was here that Saint Francis had the vision and mystical experience of the total remission of his past sins.
The Franciscan mission of peace began at Poggio Bustone.
