San Giovanni Rotondo: Spiritual Experience of Saint Pio

San Giovanni Rotondo: Spiritual Experience of Saint Pio

The guided tour of San Giovanni Rotondo will take you to visit the places where the remains of Saint Pio from Pietralcina resided, which lived here for about 50 years. The tour itinerary will unite the most significant places, the ancient church, the new church, the monastery, and the new sanctuary. The ancient church, of the mid-1500s, has a very simple façade and inside it is composed of a single baroque style nave. At a second entrance to the convent, is the cell of Padre Pio and the crypt where the body of Padre Pio was housed it was transferred to the nearby sanctuary. The visit continues with the new church, built to accommodate in an appropriate manner the considerable flow of thousands of pilgrims that flowed ever more numerous to San Giovanni Rotondo. Here, the friar celebrated mass and confessed the faithful. After having seen the various utensils that belonged to the friar of Pietralcina inside the convent, head to the cell where the friar lived.  Your tour ends at the Sanctuary, designed by architect Renzo Piano. This is one of the largest churches in Italy, capable of holding up to 7,000 people. You will first visit the upper church, characterized by stone arches and decorations made by some of the best artists of national renown such as Arnaldo Pomodoro. Then through a helical walkway, visit the lower church and the crypt where the remains of Saint Pio rest.

Siponto: Guided 3D-Reconstruction Experience

Siponto: Guided 3D-Reconstruction Experience

After meeting with your qualified tour guide, you will begin from the ancient Siponto. Inhabited since the Neolithic Age, this area has become one of the most important ports of Magna Graecia. Here you will visit the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, and the ancient cathedral of Siponto, a true jewel of Romanesque-Apulian art. Next to the basilica you can see the spectacular 3D reconstruction of the ancient early Christian basilica by Edoardo Tresoldi. 14 meters of braided metal and 7 tons of weight produce a 1/1-scale replica of the early Christian basilica that flanks the splendid medieval Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. The project changes the landscape of the entire archaeological site and stems from the will of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities to provide coverage to the mosaic still present on the pre-existing basilica. Built between the 11th and 12th centuries, the ancient cathedral of Siponto is one of the most significant monuments of the Apulian Romanesque: with a square plan, it also has a beautiful crypt as wide as the church itself.
