Monastery of Santa Maria di Vallegloria

It is located two kilometers from Spello along the road that leads to Collepino, with the toponym IGM Vallegloria Vecchio.
According to local tradition, unsupported by any documentation, the monastery was founded by the followers of St. Benedict in the year 560.
It is counted by Iacobilli among the five Camaldolese monasters of the diocese of Spoleto, it is more likely that its foundation was the work of nuns called "incarcerated", that is penitents who did not follow any rules. In the memorial known as the Chronicles of the Olorini, written between the XIV-XVI centuries, it is reported that in 1196, the blessed Balbina, daughter of Offreduccio of Count Offredo da Spello, became abbess of Santa Maria di Vallegloria, belonging to the order of the Camaldolese and placed under the authority of the monks of San Silvestro di Collepino.
