Just 90 km far from Rome in the direction of the Park of Monti Simbruini you will find an amazing sanctuary, the Holy Trinity of Vallepietra. This place is around the border line with the region Abruzzo.
Vallepietra, the ancient Vallis Pretarum or Val de Preta, is small town situated at 825 meters over the sea level in the valley of the Simbrivio River, not away from Subiaco (35 kilometres) and Rome (about 90 kilometres). It can be reached both passing through Jenne and departing from Subiaco and passing either through the Plateaus of Arcinazzo or for Trevi originating from Frusinate.
Vallepietra is delimited from the mount Tarino (m 1986) that separates it from Filettino, from the mount Author (m 1853) that separates it from Camerata and Subiaco, the Capitello that marks the border with Jenne, from the plateau of Faito that limits the borders with Trevi and from the plateau Field of the Stone that separates it from Cappadocia (Abruzzo).
In the municipality of Vallepietra is situated the Santuario della SS. Trinita’ (Sanctuary of the Holy Trinity), a small hermitage at 1,350 metres above sea level. The sanctuary is situated in a natural grotto half way up the south slope of Monte Autore where there is an image of the Trinity that appeared on the walls of a cave in the 11th century and has been venerated since.
Probably the sanctuary is located on a Roman temple (IV century a.C.), at first dedicated to the divinity of waters of the Simbrivio river (than still today they gush out under the great altar) and subsequently transformed, from monaci hermits, in the only sanctuary of the catholic world dedicated to the cult of the SS. Trinity.

Near Rome going in the south direction there are the Monti Simbruini (the mountains of Rome).
This is a protected area of the Apennines, with two thousand meter high summits, vast beech tree woodlands, large karstic plateaus, spring waters (“sub imbribus”, under the rain), scattered with small towns (the seven Park Municipalities) rich in ancient historical and artistic evidences. The regional park of Simbruini Mountains covers an area of 30,000 hectares between the Aniene valley in the west/north-west, the Sacco valley in the south-west, the border with Abruzzi in the east and Ernici Mountains in the south-east.
Famous cities around are: Camerata Nuova, Subiaco, Filettino, Trevi nel Lazio and Vallepietra. Moreover there are the area of Arcinazzo for its plateaus.
