Contigliano is crossed by the Way of St. Francis that traces its life in the Sacred Valley of Rieti and is incorporated into the longest “Via di San Francesco” that starts from the Sanctuary of La Verna on the Apennines and arrives in Rome.

The St. Francis Way in the Sacred Valley of Rieti connects the 4 sanctuaries founded by the Saint with eight stops and an 80-kilometer route signaled with special wooden and aluminum signs. The sanctuaries are those of Greccio, La Foresta, Poggio Bustone and Fonte Colombo. In addition, the route crosses the historic center of Rieti, the abbey of San Pastore and the Beech woods of Rivodutri and the natural reserves of lakes Lungo and lake Ripasottile.
