Can't miss this Basilica as it is slap bang in the main square. Very nice once inside but as it is relatively modern as Basilica's go it doesn't quite seem to have the historic charm as many of the more dated one we have visited.

Nice place to come to rest. Cool inside. Very modern church. Some evenings, there are small markets in the square opposite the church.

Lovely church raised to status of Minor Basilica. There is a pedestrian only Plaza in front of Church. Very prayerful atmosphere with families attending Mass. There was daily Mass celebrated.

We happened upon a British choir performing a free concert one Monday evening. Wow. Modern church with a lovely friendly atmosphere. Some nice statues e.g. Pope John Paul.

Lovely church in piazza centre of Montecatini Terme. Worth a visit. Lovely stained glass very different from old churches in Florence, Pisa or Lucca.

Thank Jane B
