In the mountains around Guarcino, hidden in the flourishing natural scenery, are hermitages including the Hermitage of Sant'Agnello, who for seven years he lived in this cave. He became the patron saint of this part of the country. The Benedictine monk, Sant'Agnello, was born in Naples in 535 of a rich Neapolitan family of Syracusan origin. He was perhaps related to Saint Lucia. The Hermitage can be visited, and is a destination for walkers and retreats.
