Pilgrimage to the tomb of Padre Pio

We bring you images of the crypt of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (Our Lady of Graces) in San Giovanni Rotondo, in southern Italy, which houses the remains of the revered Cappuchjn friar, St. Pio of Pietrelcina, or simply Padre Pio. The site is visited by thousands of pilgrims from all over the world each year. Pope Francis visited it on 17 March.
