The construction of the church, under the direction of the famous Italian architect, Renzo Piano, was started in 1994 and completed in 2004. The interior covers an area of 6,000 square metres and can accommodate up to 7,000 people.
The building was constructed from Apricena stone in a shape that’s reminiscent of a nautilus with a design that pays homage to the famous Archimedes screw.
The church’s supporting structure is distinguished by seventeen large arches which are arranged in a radial pattern formed out of blocks of Gargano stone. The altar and the cross are works by the artist Arnaldo Pomodoro and the church houses the largest mechanical pipe organ ever built in Italy.
On the church’s exterior, you can see a horizontal bell tower and a vast stone cross. The churchyard which is where the faithful are initially welcomed is dedicated to Pope John Paul II and is in a triangular shape that covers some 8,000 square metres.
The whole project was undertaken with great respect for the environment and is protected by 2,000 cypresses, 500 pines, 30 olive trees, 400 strawberry trees, 550 myrtles, 23,000 lavender bushes and 50,000 ivy plants.
