St. Pio Peace Centre

Shrine garden
The shrine garden in summer -- a place to enjoy fresh air, tranquility and a sense of peace.

I n a quiet corner, there is a garden, where you can relax in the company of a modern Franciscan Saint.

S ituated in north Wales, the National Shrine of Padre Pio is part of the Peace Centre and offers a warm welcome to all who visit, whether for a few hours, a whole day, a weekend retreat or longer. You can join in a day retreat centred on Padre Pio or simply make a private booking. Enjoy the peaceful garden or the wooded walks, that will take you through either the Stations of the Cross to Calvary or the Rosary way. Relax in the simplicity of Franciscan living and absorb the beautiful surrounding countryside of north Wales.
