Here you will see a bronze sepulchre under the altar where St Gemma is entombed. Also in the monastery are the remains of St Gemma’s spiritual director, Venerable Padre Germanus Ruoppolo, and Gemma’s Confessor, Monsignor Giovanni Volpi. Just outside the church there is a little museum with some of St Gemma’s clothes and personal objects. You can also find books about St Gemma, souvenirs, photos, holy cards and statues.
