This church has been rebuilt much since mid 90's.In the past you could see and touch padre Pio's coffin and now it is behind the glass.You can see his original cell behind the glass which is so impressive.Always worthy seeing.

Beautiful. Dramatic change from last visit in 1991. Simple Cathedral a must see architectural masterpiece. The tomb chapel is breathtaking... covered in gold from the faithful, another must-see and total contrast to the main cathedral upstairs. An hour from Foggia... total 4 hours from Rome but worth it if you believe. They must add a snack stand or at least... More

It is a very magical place, good walk around and feeling the vibe for when it is Via Crucis time. There are plenty of place to buy typical objects from church fans.

The Church of San Pio is simply a place of great spirituality and peace! It gives one that sense of Serenity which is very hard to come by in todays life! A must visit for all devotees of Padre Pio, you will be amazed of how you will feel once you experience the Shrine.

I have learned so much about Padre Pio here. We were very lucky to be able to enter the chapel where his body was kept. The whole chapel is so beautifully decorated with gold and color mosaic and itself is a great piece of art. We had outdoor Station of the Cross and it was awesome. The numbers of pilgrims... More

There are three churches in the complex. Two smaller older churches from the early-mid 20th century with little special to see and a truly spectacular large 21st century church. Having visited a number of five hundred to thousand year old cathedrals in my life, this allowed me to experience this in a modern context. The architecture of the new church... More

The old church and new church was worth the visit. Loved the mosaic of the new church. I liked visiting the museum showcasing the life of St. Padre Pio. Lots to see. The gift shops had a lot of great stuff to buy. Great visit!

It was a blessed moment to be able to participate at mass near the body of this amazing saint. The chapel is lavishly decorated and it's not easy to concentrate, but what a privilege!
