Birthplace of Pius X

"This is where the future Pope St. Pius X was born in 1835. Today it's a museum (the caretakers live on the left and when you ring the bell they appear and unlock the museum where he was born and raised on the right). It's located in the village of Riese Pio X (the town had been called Riese, but has since been renamed Riese Pio X) and it's well worth a visit. It's a magnificent experience to pray here and to feel the presence of Christ. All his life his mother lived here and even when he was Cardinal Patriarch of Venice he came back here to stay on a visit to see his elderly mother before she passed on."
