We were on a bus tour from our ship and selected this stop. It was a very picturesque setting and interesting small church and convent. When we visited , there were only three nuns living there and we saw two of them. The grounds are very picturesque, high on a hill and with beautiful flowers all around. There is a small gift shop and my wife bought some reasonably priced extra virgin olive oil. The two negatives are that the steps are somewhat uneven with no railings on much of them and there is only one toilet for both men and women, so with a bus load of people that can result in a delay. We enjoyed it.

The Sanctuary of the Madonna of Pantano, located in Saint Agostino Parish Church, displays the small plaster figure of the Virgin of Medjugorje. The statue had been brought to a local parishioner from Medjugorje as a gift. It is said to have wept blood at least 14 times in 1995; upon investigation, no trickery or fraud was uncovered. From the moment I read the story about this statue, I knew I had to see "The Madonna” before we left on our cruise. I am a believer, and like other faithful from around the world, I wanted to come and pay homage. Some say the tears are a call for conversion and penance. The definitive judgement of the Catholic Church is pending. You can read the story and decide for yourself. There was a steady stream of pilgrims that came to pray and worship while we were there. Hopefully the Catholic Church will recognize this as the miracle that it is.

Can't wait to go back. I traveled with my daughter an stayed in several hotels. This B&B by far was the best experience of all. Leon trees in the back yard, pear trees peaches and a full vegetable garden... Can't get better than that. Especially the hostess, Maria, is beyond lovely and goes out of her way to make sure that you have the ultimate experience!

while preparing our one day visit to Civitavecchia, this unique place really attracted me. the statue of Our Lady was bought by Mr. Fabio Gregori from Medjugorje, Bosnia as a souvenir. the statue started weeping on the feast of the presentation of Jesus in the temple and purification of Mary, 2 feb 1995 and continued until 15 march, occurring 14 times. the status is placed at the shrine our lady of tears inside St. Augustine Parish Church. at first, Mr. Gregori had a little shrine at his house, but couldn’t handle with the crush of visitors. the church is located in a small village outside of Civitavecchia, around 6 km from Fort Michelangelo. it is not difficult to find the location as there are clear indications at the road corner, written: La Madonnina (left side road if driving from the center of Civitavecchia). the church has big space of parking, and there is also café at the same compound. to this day, there isn’t much information yet in english regarding this shrine comparing to other alike phenomena. some common associated names for searching are: the weeping Madonna of Civitavecchia, the Madonna of Civitavecchia, Our Lady of Tears of Civitavecchia or La Madonnina di Civitavecchia useful link for further info: http://www.visionsofjesuschrist.com/weeping63.htm

It was in 1995 that a phenomena took place that could be said to be 'paranormal'; it was a miracle which left public opinion literally astounded and which set off debates within the Italian and foreign catholic church. On 2 February of that year, at the occasion of the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple and the Purification of May, a small statue of the Madonna, started to cry tears of blood. From that day until the 15th of March, the statue of the Madonna cried 14 times in the presence of many people who gave sworn testimony in front of a Theological Commission. The statue was scientifically examined finding no tricks or internal hidden devices and the tears were found to be of human blood. The statue eventually was put in a display case for worship by the faithful. From that day on many have come to worship the statue who everyone now calls "The Madonna of Civitavecchia". While there were no tears when we were there it is worth a visit.
