I went here with a large group of Irish pilgrims recently. We were on our way to visit Padre Pio when we heard ohh this sanctuary. Well worth a visit, everything was explained by a very helpful German nun!

The church is located on the hill which gives a beautiful view of the area. Inside, behind the altar you will see an image of Jesus on a piece of cloth...a deep spiritual and religious experience
