Very emotional to see the body of S. Pio. New church is too modern for my personal taste but the mosaics downstairs are breathtaking.

I have never heard of this city before. But we went on a week vacation as a pilgrims. It is a nice place for pilgrims, big church and hills in distance. Food and drink is expensive.

We visited here on a Saturday when there was not a crowd. Watch out for the guys directing you where to park, don't pay them attention as you can park for free. The church is very modern and beautiful. Unlike most churches. Worth a stop.

The Church of San Pio is a sight not to be missed! Once you step foot in the church you can feel the spirt of St. Pio. Sit and pray a while as the thousands of visitors each day walk through this very holy place.

We visited San Giovanni Rotondo specifically to visit the tomb of Padre Pio (now Saint Pio). We initially thought that this was located in the main church, but we soon discovered that a new church in St Pio's memory had been constructed. This is immediately adjacent to the old church where Padre Pio had been a priest. The Chiesa di... More

Please note that this is a very inspirational religious site dedicated to Saint Padre Pio. Please see the stunning chapel where his tomb is located and the chapel where the Holy Eucharist is in exposition. The pictures on the walls there take time to absorb and reflect on the life of Jesus.

It is wonderful! It is a big church with beautiful window glasses. There is enough staff to give us all kind of information. The Saint Father Pio's body is in inferior part of the church. A lot of people was there but everyone can see and pray before his holy body. It was a lovely time for prayer and retreat.

In the popular imagination, Italy is a crowded country of hubbub, fast cars, and cappuccini. So, imagine my surprise to arrive in the dark late at night in San Giovanni Rotondo, in far eastern Italy, and to wake up the next morning in a very sparsely populated and remote place. San Giovanni Rotondo is a tiny town, made world famous... More
