Time to stop, reflect and pray. If you are a devotee of St.Pio, you can relive his life and his charisma. If you do not believe ...it may not be the place to go

It is the place were Padre Pio lived, & prayed. It is the place you can see everything he used & try to imagine his life. It is a journey in the life of Padre Pio well worthed if you are a devotee of the saint. If you aren't, you wouldn't go there in the first place.

We visited the Shrine of Padro Pia in San Giovanni in Rotondo in October. We took the public bus from Foggia about an hour's ride from the city.

We have arrived to San Giovanni Rotondo and visited Cathedrals just of curiosity, not because we were too religious. we were amazed by mozaics at New Church and although we stayed in a queu and our parking time was limited we had no regrets of visiting it. Amazing !
