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.

Pietrelcina is the birthplace of San Padre Pio, and everything about this town centres on this one person. Whilst not in any way religious myself, I must admit to being somewhat in awe of the whole place. The convent itself was sponsored by a rich American lady (whose name, sadly, eludes me), who was so impressed by meeting Padre Pio (he died in 1968) that she wanted to 'do' something for the town. And what was achieved with the convent is quite amazing and most impressive. Whilst Pietrelcina is not on the typical tourist route, it is a very worth-while diversion off the beaten track.
