The hermitage of S. Columban is located in the province of Trento. And 'built halfway up the side of a sheer drop of 120 meters at the bottom where the river flows Leno.
The first installation took place in the year 753 by a "Pious Man" eager to retire to an ascetic life in peace and solitude in a natural crevice in the rock.
The first news of the construction of the hermitage are contained in a document dated 1359 and relate to a bequest by Count William of Castelbarco residents of nearby Rovereto hermits.
It is accessed via a short path and a later staircase of 102 steps carved into the rock by hand by the hermits who have succeeded over the centuries.
The hermits were the true custodians of the hermitage until 1782, when it was abolished the practice of the hermitage. The monastery and church were thus left to the care of the villagers who were dedicated with love and fidelity.
