Our tour will take you to Pietrelcina, a small town in Sannio, in the province of Benevento, where 133 years ago Francesco Forgione was born, whom the world knew as Padre Pio, and who continues to love for his testimony of Christian life and for his innumerable charisms. We will let you know the house where our beloved San Pio was born, is located at number 27 in Vico Storto Valle: a single room, which is accessed by three external steps, to the right of those who enter, a bedside table and a double bed squares, supported by wrought iron currents and iron feet; in front of the four-glass window, on this side a much-used hand-basin and an old chest, beyond a square table covered by a faded carpet, on which the books are piled up, those used by Padre Pio when he went to school; in a modest frame, a photograph of her sent to her mother by a young lady from San Giovanni Rotondo. Don't miss out on this authentic local experience.

    Casa Natale di Padre Pio
    Stop: 3 hours
    Padre Pio lived in environments distant from each other, where much of the furniture, utensils and even the hearth remained intact. Some houses develop along the Vico Storto Valle: at number 27, where the Saint was born, there is the parents' room; a room below served as a warehouse and stable for the donkey. At number 28 there are two other small rooms: the kitchen and the bedroom of some of the children, which later became a dining room. Not far from the birthplace there is a small room which is accessed via a steep staircase, therefore called the "Torretta". In 1912 the Saint moved to via Santa Maria degli Angeli at n. 44, in a house of his brother Michele made up of three rooms, and lived there until February 17, 1916. Not accessible to the disabled.
