Saint Padre Pio Shrine

I am not a religious person, and I know very little about St. Padre Pio, but I found this place fascinating…I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s like an outdoor church right on the side of the road. It’s got outside benches, angel statues at each entrance, a gift shop, and even a porta-pottie in the back. Speakers that looked like rocks play music, which I found a tad too loud. I think what I liked more than anything else was the shape of the building the statue of the saint was in….kinda looks like a mini-ampitheater or something.
