Basilica dei Santi Medici Cosma e Damiano reviews
The new Basilica-Sanctuary Santi Medici Cosma e Damiano, was built in the last century, in order to contain the thousands and thousands of faithful visiting their protectors. It is an imposing Basilica, vast, important in every point of view! It has ample exterior, extended, with obelisk in the middle of the square below and, portal in bronze, depicting sculpted scenes of the Passion of Jesus Christ. Behind it, rises a very high dominant bell tower over the entire surrounding area. The interior, has an elongated plant and, a single, very large nave, with four rows of benches perpendicular to its full length, in dark olive wood. The main altar, is of a simplicity, unusual, with respect to the imposing of this sanctuary, as well as the apse, at three levels of steps on which rests. Likewise, all the rest of the plant is simple, sober, with some statues, like that of the Pietà in light grey marble and, the statue of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, of enormous importance. While, at the top, at the center of the main altar, there is, enclosed in a shrine, the Statue of Saints martyrs and Physicians, venerated by the whole world, which is dedicated to the Basilica. In this famous Basilica, all the most special religious functions of the country are held: from baptisms to the first communions, to weddings most in the first floor. There is also the entrance for disabled people. It is, this, a Basilica, perpetually in the first floor, and its influence has repercussions, and it is felt, in every part of the world!
One of the most visited basilicas of Puglia by devotees and the rest of the world for the miraculous request of the many sick who hope to have and live in good health. The large square in front, on this occasion, as in many others, has allowed this beautiful organization that brings together almost all types of Dance and provides many good Masters who teach and form future dancers from five to five ninety years. In this event, they show the great level reached in this year. So a bigger and bigger dance squire for everyone to grow up and always stay young.
