We go often to the sanctuary of Saint Gabriel, near the Gran Sasso mountain. There is always a lot of people there, at any time of the year, but mostly busy during august, when a lot come from outside Italy, too, visiting relatives.
On the 2nd of march 2014 it was inaugurated a new big bronze door (by Paolo Annibali sculptor). It is 4 x 5 meters and they say that its weight is 6000 kilograms! There is a website for the sanctuary, but it's in italian: http://www.sangabriele.org/
