It is located on the slopes of Mount Fogliano, in the thick of a beautiful and centuries-old beech forest (Sant'Angelo wood), it was almost entirely excavated in the living rock, with the help of paid laborers, by a certain friar Girolamo Gabrielli, scion of a wealthy Sienese family, who in the first half of the 16th century decided to retire to this area of ​​Tuscia to dedicate their life to meditation and prayer.
About two years later, in 1527, the lansquenets headed to Rome to sack it and capture Pope Clement VII on behalf of Emperor Charles V, stopped at the hermitage of San Girolamo, destroying it and beating the poor friar who saved his life. he returned to Siena, leaving all his belongings to the poor.
The hermitage was rebuilt by a fellow citizen of Girolamo, Fra 'Marcantonio, while sources attest to its existence until 1628.
