    from the outside it looks like a colossal basilica, very nice. Inside you can breathe an air of serenity and downstairs you can see and pray at the tomb of the little girl Maria Goretti

    I highly recommend to visit this holy place, is basic and simple; It is a place of prayer and peace. The outside courtyard is very broad, upon entering you are greeted by the taste of peace and religiousness, descending on the lower level you can visit the sanctuary where there is Santa Maria Goretti "Marietta" and in a Cove there is a replica of his life like pictures in three dimensions. Worth a stop by.

    Passing by Neptune, whether believers or not, stop to visit the shrine. Though he was born in the 16th century the various restorations and additions they give a modern look, maybe a little far from what the collective imagination expect. The shrine is dedicated primarily to our Lady of grace, whose effigy, according to legend, landed at Nettuno from the sea, surviving a storm. If you and/or believers and/or sacred history buffs will find this legend in other places of worship in the Mediterranean, but basically just know that in Europe the Protestant (Lutheran and Anglican) reforms the faithful posed to safety on ships icons and statues. The second title, but perhaps the best known of the sanctuary is to Saint Maria Goretti, the child of God. The Sanctuary has inside the crypt with the remains of the Saint and is impressive even for those who are not believers know its history. The denial of this 12-year-old girl whose first thought in defend against aggression is protect his tormentor from damnation which would condemn, as well as one of his last thoughts will forgive him.
