You have reached the House of God, who awaits you here to take care of you. You are in the place made holy by the presence of Saint Anthony. You are about to enter a Holy Place which is particularly meaningful for the faith.

Follow the path indicated and, at the end of it, go to the Pilgrim Reception Office (Ufficio Accoglienza), located next to the gift shop at the Magnolia Cloister, to receive a memento of your pilgrimage.
