The crypt is underground, but the beauty of its mosaics make it look as heaven! One can stay there for hours.

This is at the top of a mountain and overlooks the below city of San Giovanni. It is a beautiful site to see. The tomb of San Pio is very somber and spiritual, and walking through the whole Chiesa is wonderful!
