The San Romedio sanctuary is a hermitage erected on a rock at an altitude of 750 meters. It is located on the eastern side of the Non Valley between the villages of Sanzeno and Coredo.
The car park is about 100 meters beneath the sanctuary. An alternative route, very picturesque, is by car along highway 43D to the Rhaetian Museum, 500 meters north of Sanzeno and then onto a footpath for about 2 km. This path for some stretches is carved into the rock and quite exposed, but protected by sturdy wooden railings . Traditionally, Saint Romedio is associated with the figure of a bear, and close to the sanctuary there is an area which houses this specimen .
