Sanctuary Of San Giuseppe Da Copertino
The sanctuary of St. Joseph of Cupertino attracts every years a lot of people that wants to approach the figure of this Saint
Sanctuary of protector of students and of aviators
There are a lot of thesis and exam transcripts , left by students as “ex voto”, depositions of devotion to the “Saint of flights”. Friar Giuseppe was called in this way because he had often moments of ecstasy with the vision of the Madonna and he lifted miraculously in front of the incredulous eyes of his brothers. Even if it wasn’t brilliant, he was successful in completing his study, thanks to the help of the Virgin, that’s why today the students come here to pray his name in proximity of important tests.
The destination for tourists is the crypt of the church where the body of the saint, patron of the city, lies in a beautiful sarcophagus.
