Religious Site
Basilica di Santa Rita is a minor basilica housing the relics of St. Rita, as well as numerous frescoes and bas-reliefs depicting her life and work. Ascend the hill of St. Augustine and climb a short flight of steps to reach the white travertine facade--inside, you'll find ornate works of art, a majestic organ, and the sarcophagus of St. Rita, which lies behind a narrow door leading into the old Church of the Blessed Rita. The marble-based sarcophagus was carved by Eros Pillini, and features four angels representing the cardinal virtues.

  • Cascia is my second home. I love Santa Rita and whenever we can we start to spend even just a day. The Basilica, yesterday, was with the scaffold after the earthquake, for restoration. The place is always welcoming and there is the peace of the soul

  • Although work is ongoing renovation and restoration, Interior without detracting from the sacredness of the site allows due recollection before the relics of the Holy

  • My wife and I stayed at Cascia visited the basilica of s. Rita a place of reflection, silence and prayer! The tomb of Saint Rita is really impressive. Too bad, we would have liked to see even the central part of the basilica but unfortunately closed with towels because you work for the earthquake ... Anyway I highly recommend.
