If you have limited time - see San Giovanni Rotondo instead
Nov 2019
I did not realize how much time it would take to get to Pietrelcina and San Giovanni from Pompeii - so I wish I had known then what I know now: If you have a *limited* amount of time like I did, visiting San Giovanni Rotondo is far more interesting a pilgrimage than Pietrelcina. The town of Pietrelcina itself is quite remote - but I found San Giovanni Rotondo far more inspirational. It's amazing to think of what the town would have been like during Padre Pio's lifetime (especially with the travelling he did back and forth).

Saint Padre Pio is worth a 2-day visit in Pietrelcina
Jun 2018 • Family
Born in Pietrelcina, this extraordinary saint (the only Catholic Priest to have received the stigmata), well deserves a 2 day visit in his hometown. "In Pietrelcina, there was Jesus and it all started there" said Padre Pio when referring to his hometown.
Visiting his birthplace and other crucial streets where you can relate to his path to sainthood makes the visit worth while.
A crucial walk is the one he loved the most, the road from Pietrelcina to Piana Romana, where his parents had a small house that you can visit. Walking that road (Starting from the Road of Little Madona) you leave Pietrelcina and find the so-called Rosary Walk, where Padre Pio, as Francesco Forgionne, would walk while praying the Rosary, accompanied by Mary and Jesus. It is this road that somehow fills your heart and prepares you to receive many blessings at the site in Piana Romana where Padre Pio received the first signs of the stigmata under a large Elm tree on Septembre 7th, 1910. There you will find the Chapel that keeps the preserved "Olmo".
So, two days is just enough to visit the town of Pietrelcina and everything related to his life and on the second, you can follow the trail he often took to Piana Romana and visit the sacred places there where Jesus and Mary accompanied him so often.

Birthplace of a Saint

We did not know that Padre Pio was born in this town when we booked our hotel and it was a pleasant surprise to visit this church and see the museum.

A must visit for those devoted to St Padre Pio
Sep 2016
A visit to Padrio Pio's boyhood home is very moving and worth a visit for anyone interested in his life-there are always group buses in the town and the souvenir shops can be off-putting-but the town is very panoramic and worth a trip
