The Eremo di San Michele (hermitage of St Michael) is a small Benedictine monastery built into an overhanging cliff of the Monti Picentini. It is far from roads, the only way to reach it is by hiking, for example from Puglietta, which is actually a part of Campagna. The hermitage is located about 1,000 m asl, so it is quite an ascent from the 400 m asl high village.
