  • The building is impressive. The interior is very rich. And for the believers, it has some relics of St. Antonio (of Lisbon or Padova .... both cities reclaim the saint). 
  • I had never seen so large a basilica. You can visit at any time of the day, obviously without the payment of the ticket. Beautiful

  • Aside from the fame and universal devotion of the Holy where the basilica is dedicated, from outside the blow d eye is great. It stands in all its Majesty and dominates over other buildings. Also to be seen only from the outside. for those who love photography.
