Basilica di Santa Rita is a minor basilica housing the relics of St. Rita, as well as numerous frescoes and bas-reliefs depicting her life and work. Ascend the hill of St. Augustine and climb a short flight of steps to reach the white travertine facade--inside, you'll find ornate works of art, a majestic organ, and the sarcophagus of St. Rita, which lies behind a narrow door leading into the old Church of the Blessed Rita. The marble-based sarcophagus was carved by Eros Pillini, and features four angels representing the cardinal virtues.

A place of great faith and prayer. One of the most important shrines in Italy. Next to the basilica has the convent where she lived. In a room below, he preserves a host in whom blood came out through a miracle. I recommend and would return
Posto bellissimo quando arrivi al santuario senti proprio la pace dei sensi consiglio di andare in mezzo alla settimana meno affollato. more »Beautiful place when you arrive at the shrine you feel just the peace of the senses I recommend to go in the middle of the less crowded week.
I like the santuary of St. Rita. It is quite peaceful and holy place. You can feel that there is something special. Even the Church where her body stays, is somehow special. I like the library where you can find a lots of interesting titles.
Very nice Monastery. Very quit and beautiful church.
