The church of St Anthony is very ornate and crowded but still retains the sense of St Anthony. Especially interesting are the various chapels devoted to different saints. However the relics are extremely unique. St Anthony's tongue, teeth and vocal chords are displayed in a...More

Interesting church because the relics of the Saint but nothing so special. Definitely overrated. Also, taking photo is not permitted...it's a church, public church, but evidently Vatican received a message from God telling them that he doesn't like to be photographed

There is obviously a significant religious importance to this church - with the tomb, clothes and relics of St. Anthony being preserved here. However, even for the non-religious, the church is a must-see with magnificent frescoes and art. Overall fascinating.

Intricate frescoes blending in with statues has reliefs and other architectural elements. Sometimes difficult to tell apart frescoed figures from real ones which creates a surreal feeling. Worth visiting Padua just for that Basilica

This was a wonderful experience. It lived up to our expectations. Was not too crowded on the day we visited so we were able to have a good look around. Very good Cathedral shop.

You have tried everything on your end but still things have not manifested yet? Well, have you prayed for the best interest of all concerned? If yes, go and ask St Anthony from your heart. I have heard many miracle stories and I have experienced...More
