Basilica di Santa Rita, Cascia

(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A lovely place and great reflection. From here start to trace the history of Santa Rita. Live this Holy from his mortal remains is the best way to start until you get to the rock of prayer. Very nice and spacious basilica is a must visit!

  • Even for those who, like me, didn't particularly appeal to faith, this place has something magical, as well as all Cascia. Puts at peace with yourself and makes you look inside.
