Accommodation in Radicofani: Spedale di San Pietro e Giacomo

Spedale di San Pietro e Giacomo and has been accommodating pilgrims of the the Via Francigena since June 2007. It is located in the centre of Radicofani, ancient village in Tuscany, historical transit place for pilgrims of the Via Francigena. Radicofani is at times not mentioned in some Pilgrim’s guides, perhaps due to the road going uphill to get there. Yet, Radicofani belongs to one of the most authentic and interesting parts of the Via Francigena. Passing trough Radicofani allows reducing the distance thus avoiding a piece of motorway that is concerning for the safety of pilgrims.

Eligibility criteria

  • Valid pilgrim’s credential (normally released by a religious organisation).

About us and contacts

We are pilgrims of Confraternita di San Jacopo di Compostella . In years, we combined faith, study and historical research on pilgrimage, reconstructing the authentic itineraries of the ancient pilgrimages that did build Europe and Christianity. We have learned the christian fraternity from the hospitality we received ourselves: that’s why we want to offer it to pilgrims who are walking in Italy, on the via Francigena , and in Spain, on the Cammino di Santiago.
