The happy and evocative location of the Ospitale San Lorenzo Martire in the premises of the former Capuchin Convent of Pontremoli makes it the ideal place to recharge oneself in the physical and the spirit after the arduous journey that leads from Berceto to Pontremoli, the first stage Tuscany of the Via Francigena.

Pontremoli and Lunigiana have been lands of passage for sovereigns, armies, merchants and pilgrims over the centuries and have always had the vocation of hospitality.

Heir to this tradition, the Missionary Group "Padre Daniele, with the spiritual guidance of Don Pietro Pratolongo and in collaboration with other voluntary associations in the city, works to accommodate and better respond to the needs of pilgrims that increasingly growing along the roads of faith: the Via Francigena, the Via degli Abati, the Via del Volto Santo.

Continuing the best Franciscan tradition, the convent, recently renovated, is able to ensure moments of genuine serenity and peace to pilgrims and groups of religious inspiration who "knock" on its door.

The type of hospitality offered, normally, is self-management: we provide the structure, beds, blankets, bathrooms and showers. Each pilgrim or guest will have his own sleeping bag and personal linen; if someone needs the sheets we can provide them with an extra fee for the laundry.

Board: guests or if they prepare it themselves (equipped kitchen at their disposal) or go to town (a few hundred meters).

For groups that stay for several days there are also two meeting rooms, a room with free Wi-Fi coverage, a chapel, large green areas and a small wood.

There is no fixed fee for hospitality; of course a contribution and an offer is requested and is welcome.

Within 200 m. church, train station, ATM, bar / restaurant, supermarket, pharmacy, hospital, inhabited area.

No smoking in the entire building.
