The walk was inaugurated in 2013, when the 800th anniversary of Francesco's passage in Valmarecchia occurred, and the donation of La Verna mountain happened in San Leo.
It winds through a wonderful landscape, along the Marecchia river, with rugged cliffs and ancient fortified villages.
The Appennine stretch, connect Valmarecchia to La Verna and it is on the mountains, through forests and ridges.
A legend tells that San Francesco, during his wandering, once was hosted in a poor house, where a cypress walking stick was kindly offered to him. The saint planted this stick in Villa Verucchio, where now we can see an extraordinary centuries-old tree.
