  • I suppose it should be a good place for believers, in fact there were quite a few people there. The place is... nothing. It is the image of padre Pio and nothing more. It is easily accessible even if you have to walk a little, but not much.

  • BEARING CAP! because you're going to walk a couple of blocks to the ray of the Sun! The place is good but not is nothing otherworldly.

  • In the place there is nothing, only the cave and is the only place where there is some shade. Bring water.
