|Caption:||Just outside the door leading from the Grotto of St. Francis is a quatrefoil-shaped hole in the smooth pink stone known as the "Devil Hole." This looks into the not-very-deep crevasse into which St. Francis is said to have tossed a troublesome demon who tempted Brother Rufino. Many visitors throw coins into the hole. Eremo delle Carceri, Assisi, Italy.|
