    The basilica of Santa Giustina is one of the largest churches in the world, you can appreciate its size already from the outside, but once inside you realize the immensity of the structure. upon entering a Church seems cold and bare, especially if you compare it to the many churches that are close, but each chapel has paintings by artists such as Tintoretto, Jordan ... Here there are the remains of several Biblical figures including those of the evangelist Luke. To visit!

  • I was told by a friend, an Italien architecht who studied in Florence, that Padua was the most beautiful city on earth - especially in terms of the built environment. After spending a week there, I entirely agree.
  • It's huuuge! But most walls are white and empty. Wish it was decorated like others churches of the area. Still worth the detour if close-by though
  • Absolutely beautiful church complex with remarkable works of art.
  • A humongous building, very well made and nicely decorated on the inside.
  • Neat but not a cool style.
