Sant'Antonino is the patron saint of the city.HistoryThe Basilica on pilgrimage routes was designed by Pietro Vago in 1350. In 1998, a large statue of Gregory X, sculpted by Giorgio Groppi, was placed under the large Portico of Paradise. The Portico was itself completed in the 12th century with carvings by the school of Niccolò da Ferrara. The church has been rebuilt and modified across the century. The carved wood ceiling was substituted by Gothic tracery. In the 19th century pseudo-gothic decroation was added to the interior. The adjacent cloister dates to 1483.The interior of the church contains frescoes by Camillo Gavasetti in the presbytery, and canvases by Robert de Longe. Many of the works have been transferred to the Civic Gallery. Among the works retained is a "Coronation of the Virgin" by Gian Battista Trotti (il Malosso).

  • The city's most beautiful Basilica, visited by many tourists from all over the world is definitely worth visiting, frescos that takes your breath away. Located in piazza Sant'Antonino in the heart of Piacenza is a destination for many tourists, thanks to the fact that in 5 minutes walking distance you can reach piazza Cavalli or piazza Duomo where we find the Cathedral, also right in front of the Basilica of Sant'Antonino is find good food Delicatessen, convenient to stop and have a snack. Masses on Sunday at 10 am and 11.30 a.m.
