  • The Basilica is located in a very nice environment city architecturally, coming from prato della valle, the walk under the arcades is pleasant with its background the Majesty of the Basilica. Already entering is evident the presence of different art forms of particular value. The Saint's Tomb, in particular, is a place of meditation and spirituality.
