    I have known and appreciated this beautiful church, now the Pontifical Basilica, thanks to some friends in Afragola, with whom we have organized charity events several times at the teatro parish. Based on the information I have gathered on the internet I can state the following: the establishment of "Citadel antoniana" Afragola, by the Franciscan order, dates back to 1633, the Church was completed and consecrated in 1715. After various vicissitudes, deletions and restorations, the Church was awarded in 2004 the title of Papal Basilica minor. The Interior, covered with marble, is a three-nave with apse and chapels on the left side. The Basilica houses a miraculous crucifix attributed to Friar Umile of Petralia the wooden statue of Saint Anthony of Padua of the 17th century in a great Tabernacle of 1922 known as "Throne of the Saint", a marble pulpit by Francesco Jerace, and other works of art. In the sacristy a painting by Agostino Beltranio depicting the apparition of the infant Jesus to St. Anthony (1630). The convent, with the seraphic College, houses the library of the convent of Saint Anthony that collects more than sixteen thousand volumes, including many rare or unique pieces.
