Abbazia di San Pietro in Valle – Ferentillo (TR)
Probably the abbey, now predominantly Romanesque in appearance, was built on the remains of a previous building, in turn built above an older Roman villa or, more likely, a pagan sanctuary.
Its origins are to be found in the legend, which is sometimes intertwined with history and makes up for the lack of documented information.
11 April 491 AD he settled on the throne of the Anastasio I Dicoro empire, faithful to the monophysite heresy, so far it is history, as a result of which, and here begins the legend which however probably derives from real events, although not documented by sources, three hundred Syrian monks , to escape persecution, they embarked towards Italy.
Welcomed here by Pope Ormisda, with his authorization they went to evangelize peoples who lived on the Umbrian Apennines of the Marches and among whom Christianity was not yet widespread.
They founded hermitages and abbeys along the Via Flaminia or near it, among the most famous monks we remember Spes, Eutizio, Fiorenzo, Isacco, Mauro and his son Felice.
Among the hermits who settled in Valnerina, less known than the ones mentioned above, there were Lazzaro and Giovanni, whose life is little known.
After having long preached in Spoletino, around 535 they decided to settle in a cave at the foot of Mount Solenne, not far from the Nera river, which crossed the valley.
