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.

  • Have already been several times in this church. You can not just say that it is not beautiful, sumptuous and magnificent ... and so is too much (in my opinion, poorly binds with the figure of a humble servant of God). Nothing short of amazing the Saint's Tomb.

  • I went to San Giovanni Rotondo for a visit to the new Church and to pray at the tomb of the Saint. Points are definitely beautiful and allow for contemplation, meditation and a lovely view of the landscape, which combines the vision of the mountain with the sea in the background.

  • Modern church with beautiful mosaics on the descent to the Saint's Tomb, a little distracting the upper Church, too big for my taste, too bad about the beautiful mosaic gold coating tear perhaps exaggerated in quantities for my liking anyway to visit!
