  • Il Colle Don Bosco Sanctuary is located on the hills of Castelnuovo Don Bosco and is dedicated to St John Bosco. In particular, the sanctuary is divided into two temples, the superior and the inferior and are connected by an elevator that scales. Without detracting from the upper Temple, which is still the main where Sunday masses, I would describe the emotions that I feel when I'm in the bottom pane. This temple is partially underground and various stained glass Windows that wrap around and bring the light inside are at the square outside. It is very large, because by eye and cross holds about 400 people sitting in the pews. Behind the altar there is a beautiful painting depicting San Giovanni Bosco with children in rural scenery, while on the wall at the bottom of the tempilo, in an elevated position on a small balcony accessible by a staircase and a flight is represented the last supper. Returning to the emotions that makes me this fascinating place, what more I appreciate in my visits, strictly in the days and hours of minimum turnout is the almost total silence that allows you to enter a new dimension and unknown. A dimension that is ideal for "unplug" and let the most beautiful thoughts.
