The Eremo di San Bartolomeo in Legio is a cave church located under an overhanging cliff face. The overhang is rather long, forming a sort of ledge along a ravine, south of Roccamorice. It is reached from the town by following the Via de Horatiis towards west. Out of the town it crosses the ravine. From the bridge across the river a trails along the ravine leads to the hermitage at the end of the valley. Its only a short walk, about 600 m or 10 minutes.
