The Pilgrims’ Path is the ancient link between the village of Cerchiara di Calabria and the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Armi. Walking through it means immersing yourself in the history and tradition of one of the oldest villages of Pollino Orientale. Before leaving, in the alleys of the village you can smell the scent of freshly baked hot bread. Along the way you can see the pavement and the stone steps of a street more than 300 years old.

The path, particularly pleasant in spring, crosses a dense oak forest, a tree symbol of Cerchiara. The breadth of views on the Ionian coast is a pleasure for the eyes and the soul. Complete the experience the visit, upon arrival, the ancient Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Armi, wrapped between history and legend on Mount Sellaro.
