San Giovanni Rotondo is one of the most important religious destinations in Italy, because it preserves the remains of San Pio da Pietrelcina, a Capuchin friar who spent most of his life in this charming area.
WHAT WILL WE DO DURING THE WALK?
You will leave the guide in front of the Ancient Church and during the journey you will listen the life of the friar and we will visit the places where Padre Pio lived: the Ancient church, the convent and his private room. Finally we will visit the new Church, which houses the remains of the Saint, the Sanctuary of San Pio, inaugurated in 2004 and designed by the architect Renzo Piano, almost entirely from the offerings of the Pilgrims.
