San Colombano is a hermitage in Trambileno (near Rovereto, Trentino), notable for its location in the side of a mountain.
Some natural caves, halfway up the rock wall of the gorge formed by the stream of Leno were certainly used from 753 (the date inscribed on the rock) from a hermit.
The first documentary evidence of the presence of the hermitage and church dating back to 1319, relating to a bequest made to the "Church of Saint Columba" by William Count of Castelbarco.
The hermitage of the "hermit's cave" was used by monks, hermits, who were its guardians, until 1782 when the practice of the hermitage was abolished.
The hermitage is accessed by a staircase of 102 steps carved into rock.


You do always present very special and very well composed views.
Ammirabile !!
