  • Basilica of Santa Rita is a unique place that preserves the incorruptible body of Santa Rita de Cascia. It is located in the city of Cascia, an umbria region in Italy. 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

  • 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.
