This church may be modern, but people flock to this place primarily to venerate the mortal remains of St. Rita of Cascia (located in a chapel on the left side of the main altar). The entire complex is actually divided into two parts: we have...More

St. Rita, patroness of hopeless matters is a hope for many pilgrims coming to this place. The tomb of St. Rita is in the nave of the basilica.

A beautiful small town in d middle of Italy seating just under the sanctuary and the baselic of St Rita. The baselic is beautiful and the body of St Rita is so sacred its touchy.

I believe that is not possible to collect leaves (or one leaf) from the grape of St. Rita...by the way you can pray inside the Monaster or inside the churh. Or, in alternative, you can buy some objects devoted to St. Rita...
