We were in a tour group. Our priest was able to celebrate Mass in the old Church. It was moving to be in the Church of Padre Pio. The new Church is huge and lovely.

Interesting place, and to hear about all the miracles and superpowers that padre pio possessed. The building and complex is pretty. As a man of science i found the cult of padre pio quite interesting . I'm skeptical.

This is an amazing experience! The power of this Saint is truly visible in the sick persons who come here with so much faith. Prayers are truly answered even for other intentions.

This church is really beautiful but surprisingly small and right above the church is the window where St.Pio waved to his spiritual children!Connected to the old church is a bigger church for masses.You can also see St.Padre Pio’s confessional in the old church.
