Camaldoli represents the heart of the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests, Monte Falterona and Campigna. Indeed, we can say that if today this green area on the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines exists, much of the credit is undoubtedly by the Camaldolese monks. Since the foundation of this monastic place, at the beginning of the 11th century, the care of the forest was an essential rule. A love for the environment and at the same time a source of income derived from the sale of timber. Since the Middle Ages, the long trunks of silver fir left the Casentino with a natural means of transport represented by the Arno and headed for Florence and Pisa, where they were used for the construction of important and large buildings (including the Duomo of Florence) and the construction of ships.
The Monastery and the Sacred Hermitage of Camaldoli integrate perfectly with the surrounding forest. Today it would be impossible to think of the spirituality of these places excluding the beautiful nature in which they are immersed. It is equally true that this nature would not have the same value without a historical, religious, cultural reality like Camaldoli.
The numerous CAI paths present in the woods of this area certainly trace ancient work paths and also important communication routes. From these assumptions, walking on these paths has a charm that goes beyond the wonders that nature offers us. The symbiosis with spirituality is always present. Both from the monastery and from the hermitage there are many paths on which we can try our hand. Short and relaxing walks for everyone, as well as challenging routes, in terms of length and height difference, suitable for those who make trekking a real passion. Short walk or long hike, on the way back, a good chocolate prepared according to an ancient recipe of the Monks of Camaldoli awaits us.
