Cascia lies in the beautiful valley of the Nera, a river that originates in the Marche region in the Sibillini Mountains and then joins the Tiber.
A splendid town of millennia-old origins, Cascia today owes its worldwide notoriety to the cult of St. Rita, a nun of the Augustinian order canonized in 1900, venerated by millions of believers as the saint of impossible causes.
Dedicated to her, who died here in 1457, is the Sanctuary of Cascia, a religious complex that retraces the places where the nun lived and preserves her remains.
St. Rita is remembered every year on May 22, the anniversary of her death, with a solemn celebration involving the entire city and thousands of pilgrims from all over the world.
