Convento Santa Maria delle Grazie

Attraction details
Reviewed 1 October 2016 via mobile

Padre Pio has been called the most important Italian of the 20th century, and that would take some doing. He has inspired the country, popes, his followers and contributors. Look no further than the number of hostelries and monuments dedicated to him throughout Italy. The enormous hospital adjacent is the beneficiary of his good works. He is worth encountering on a temporal level. Now for the spiritual. Stigmata is a powerful concept and despite self conscious prattling cannot be explained away by Freudian interpretations. He seemed to have spiritual knowledge of the way of the world and meaning of events. Finally, very holy people who came to meet him, came away convinced he was a saint. Experience this place, his shoes, his crucifix, the bloody linen from his wounds with an open mind and heart. You will be rewarded.

One has to marvel at the beauty of the art work and it would have taken years to complete. It makes you think how talented were these workers and God certainly graced those people with such talent. It is a magical site.

Right next to the newer Chiesa di San Pio is this older one where you can enter the door on the far right to enter the museum. Padre Pio's cell, personal effects, and cross (in front of which he received the stigmata) can be seen here. Must visit if you're here for Padre Pio. This was where he was originally laid to rest before being moved to the newer church.
