St. Rita, patroness of hopeless matters is a hope for many pilgrims coming to this place. The tomb of St. Rita is in the nave of the basilica.

A beautiful small town in d middle of Italy seating just under the sanctuary and the baselic of St Rita. The baselic is beautiful and the body of St Rita is so sacred its touchy.

Nice Catholic with interesting interior design. It is not worth going out of you way to visit but do drop by if you are near. It is far from as impressive as some of the major churches though.
