  • Wonderful basilica very rich not only internally, but .... Place of religious pilgrimage from all over the world, houses the remains of the Holy Father Annibale Maria of France, as well as of the blessed father Maddox. Venue Museum also Avignon, scale replica of the old neighborhood where pursued his opera Saint Hannibal. Museum which also contains relics of Saint like dresses, the coffin and a reproduction of his room. The basilica also contains the same soup kitchen for the poor and the prestigious statue of St. Anthony every June 25 paraded in procession through the streets of the city. Have recently been setting up a large notice board with many votive offerings. Highly recommended!

  • The strong devotion to Saint did it become Basilica and every year recurrences are very Harrahs; the friars preach and work with much fervor

  • A precious opportunity to attend Mass when the QM2 decided to drop in but Cunard and the Mafia obviously forgot to tell the locals! May Day, everywhere closed ....  more »

  • Absolutely beautiful.
  • Charitable church
  • It is not a masterpiece but it is one of the most visited churches in Messina. In his crypt lies the incorrupt body of Saint Hannibal of France.

  • The sanctuary is beautiful, much of the credit goes to brother Roberto Cabral who is the one that takes care of the Basilica and prepares it for every event.
