Eremo di S. Caterina del Sasso Reviews
Tutto molto bello, la posizione a picco sul lago, la pulizia e la conservazione degli immobili sono perfetti.

The only negative note is the price. 5 euros for the visit plus 2 euros to go down and then go back up seem like an exaggeration counting that in the end it is still only a church.
La visita merita veramente, pur da non credente bisogna saper riconoscere, la pace che ispirano questi luoghi. Prezzi ben ricompensati dalla bellezza del posto. more »The visit really deserves, even as a non-believer it is necessary to know how to recognize, the peace that inspires these places. Prices well rewarded by the beauty of the place.
Once again a nice place by the water. Like many other religious places it is well maintained and located in a prime location. Unlike many other sites you can access the main buildings by elevator. We took the stairs but I thought it was nice to give access to all. It’s fairly a small place to visit. There are some tables where you can have a picnic with a nice view of the Lake. Make sure you bring cash because they don’t take credit cards.
Some years ago was all free.. you can go, enjoy the place , feel the history. Nowadays is all about making money: elevator does cost, as the visit to the small church. So yes, nice place but in contradiction with what should be the "house of God".... You're welcome if you pay. It should be free , it should be for the soul and not for the pocket
