Santuario di San Gabriele dell'Addolorata - Isola del Gran Sasso (TE)

The foundation of the Convent according to the legend would be linked to the presence of St. Francis; for centuries it was entrusted to the conventuals who had to abandon it after the suppression of religious orders by the French. In 1847 it was entrusted to the Passionist fathers.

Today, linked to the figure of San Gabriele dell'Addolorata, whose remains are preserved, the Sanctuary at the foot of the Gran Sasso is among the best known in Italy and in Europe. A recent ranking places it among the top 15 most popular sanctuaries in the world. Two million pilgrims arrive every year to pray over the tomb of the young Passionist student. The most striking aspect of whoever arrives is the massive presence of young people: hundreds of thousands come to him for a prayer stop. Every year, at the beginning of March, thousands of high school students from Abruzzo and the Marche arrive at the sanctuary for a day of spirituality "100 days from the high school exams", while at the end of August thousands of young people from all over Italy camp here for 5 days for the Tent City-Youth Festival, giving life to a religious meeting made of meetings, conferences, prayer, testimonies.
