We were able to attend Mass at the Old Church and visited the crypt of Padre Pio. The Church is modern,beautiful and we are awed by the magnificent mosaics/murals. This serves as a wonderful setting to the final resting place of our saint, Padre Pio where we spent in prayers and contemplation, a spiritually refreshing enclave,and a wonderful tribute to...

Very clean and very nice place to pray and go for confession. There are many rooms you can go to meditate and the area is very spacious outside that you can have a quiet corner for yourself and God.

The new church "Chiesa di San Pio" is the latest tribute to Padre Pio; it now his resting place with his body in full view for prayer and devotion in the lower chapel. The church structure is modern,beautifully decorated with magnificent mosaics and was built to accommodate the thousands of pilgrims that arrived at the Shrine daily. However, one should... More

I have been visiting this shrine for 30 years and to 'feel' the journey would recommend that you visit the old church first to experience the humble beginnings of this man, his journey and challenges, his healings, and how the hospital originated.Take time to visit the Cell and see how he lived, and see the multitude of items including hundreds...

Really interesting modern architecture for upper church. The mosaics below leading to Padre Pio are absolutely breathtaking. They were created by the same artist who did the Lourdes upper basilica and the design for the Jubilee Year of Mercy 2016. I've been to countless churches around the world and I think hands down these are the most beautiful, colorful mosaics... More

This relatively new church is simply awesome in the true sense of the word. It is huge but ever so reverent and solemn. You will learn a lot about Padre Pio.

This is a remarkable structure built to seat 30,000. The architecture is amazing, but wonder if Padre Pio would have liked this building. He was so humble. The gold and silver used in pictures is mind boggling and beautiful.
