Characteristics of the route
The route creates a symbolic thread between two important figures for medieval spirituality: Saint Celestino V and Saint Francesco from Assisi. We can say that Celestino received and continued the renovation project started by the Poverello of Assisi, renovation of values as the feeling of humility, the aspiration to simplicity of life, the effort in helping the poor and the weakest people.
