What a lovely church in its simplicity. Very serene and peaceful. Life story of Maria Goretti in the crypt in lower level of the church. Story was told in written and picture form. Nuns were very informative too.

A very inspirational and holy place of pilgrimage!! A very nice half day trip from Rome where you can also see the Med and eat along the water.

The sanctuary is a tomb, a memorial to the short life of a 12-year-old girl, Maria Goretti, killed in 1902 after fighting off her potential rapist. Declared a saint in 1950, she is one of the youngest saints ever canonized. The story of this virgin...More
