  • Getting to the cave of Padre Pio is an experience that every being live in their own way. Walk along a path that marks religious, until you reach the Grotto itself stops. A place that has a special power to meditate. In a field opposite the route there is a stay called the Aurora, where it says its former owner that there is poso an Ovni.La truthfulness of this led to a U.S. astronaut reached the place and bring you gift two dogs to the owner of the stay with who lock a friendship. Today Mr. takes already died but I had opportunity to see him cleaning the cave, with great humility. I recommend to visit this place for religious beliefs or out of curiosity. It is a very interesting experience.
