VIA FRANCIGENA

The Hotel route 9 is on the way of VIA FRANCIGENA, historical itinerary leading to Rome from Canterbury, a major route which in the past was used by thousands of pilgrims on their way to Rome. This route bears witness to the importance of the practice of pilgrimage in medieval times; the pilgrim was to travel mostly on foot (for penitential reasons), covering about 20-25 Km a day, and was driven by a fundamentally devotional reason: the pilgrimage to the Holy Sites of Christianity .

There were at the time three main centers of attraction for that journeying humanity: Rome, first of all, the site of the martyrdom of Saint Peter and Saint Paul; Santiago de Compostela, the place chosen by the apostle Saint James to rest in peace and obviously Jerusalem in the Holy Land.
