Chiesa di San Pio, San Giovanni Rotondo
(3.2/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Visit one of the most famous shrines in the world at Chiesa di San Pio, a Catholic shrine for Saint Padre Pio, a friar, priest, and mystic who died in 1968. The old church and the shrine are located in the same place, so you can visit the lower chapel and view the relics of Saint Pio. You can also see his cell, confessional, and many of his personal belongings on display. There are no English tours, so consider hiring a guide or doing research before visiting. Plan your visit to Chiesa di San Pio and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our San Giovanni Rotondo holiday planner.

  • Paryorito architectural jewel by the inspiration of Renzo Piano, is a megastructure whose interior houses the upper Church very large and roomy, while downstairs is preserved the tomb of Friar Saint surrounded by a real maze in c i i in spite of the signs and the organization you can get lost easily.
