Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • The new part is made by Renzo Piano and with mosaics of Rupnik is gorgeous. The crypt with the body of padre Pio is wonderful. The part of the convent tells how he lived really pious father, before all this triumph that, rightly, he was awarded with a huge poverty and humility. You have to climb in this spirit to understand what you are going to do. Servant of God him, we have to be servants of God, too.

  • the place you should be an example of parsimony and recollection, super gorgeous, even with the tacky gold paint, just to respect the rule of poverty etc. ultimately, in step with the times of this world turning upside down.
