Yet anorher beatiful church in Italy. The church tells a story of one of the most important catholic dogmas. Beatiful and modesty building and interior gives the right atmosphaere. The miracle story should be read before the visit for the best experience.

It is fun exploring the different sites in Lanciano, but this one was very impressive. Everything is so intricate and detailed, it's something I will remember for years to come. Regardless of religious belief, I find anyone could take something from visiting.
