    Ariccia is a small village between Lake Albano and Lake Nemi,with little more than 18,000 inhabitants who settled between the hills and away from the bustling capital of Italy. It is also a favorable place for thought and meditation.

    For this reason, Pope Francisco will take this week their agenda and not hold public or private hearings.

    This is the first time in decades that the retreat has been held outside of the Vatican.  The Pope believes that having spiritual retreats in a different location inspires detachment and appreciation.
