  • New Camaldoli Hermitage is a rural Camaldolese Benedictine hermitage in the Santa Lucia Mountains of Big Sur, California, in the United States. The Camaldolese branch of the Benedictine family was founded by St. Romuald in the late 10th century. The hermitage was founded in 1958 by two monks from the motherhouse in Camaldoli in northern Italy, who had spent two years searching for a site that combined solitude and natural beauty. It is located at an altitude of approximately 1,300 feet, and is approached by a winding two-mile road, which gives the visitor a clear view of the landscape.
