  • Basilica of a Saint among the most popular, but also a monument of great artistic beauty, more for the Interior and exterior architecture not. Recommended to all.

  • The Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padua/Padova is simply wonderful. It took many years to be built, and so had different influences during its construction. Not to be missed!

  • Go to Padua without visiting the "Holy" would make no sense. The most important Church of the city visited annually by millions of faithful who holds the remains of St. Anthony is a place full of spiritual charge and fascinating architecture that really deserves to be seen.
