Santuario di Santa Maria della Foresta

Via Foresta, 28, Rieti

Shrine of St. Mary of Forest is one of the four shrines erected by St. Francis, along with Fonte Colombo, Greccio and Poggio Bustone. In prefrancescana era the complex was made up of a country church, dedicated to St. Fabiano. The place is remembered for "wine miracle": in the twelfth century there was a small vineyard that gave little fruit, during his stay Francesco made sure to get more than double the wine made in the previous year. Recently Shrine has taken on a new look and preserves precious Franciscans relics.
