Benedictine Abbey. Stark, austere exterior belies the treasures inside including the tomb of St Luke the Evangelist.

Rebuilt in the 17th century this huge Basilica fronts onto the Prato della Valle and is only about 7 minutes walk from the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua. Entry is free. Much of the artwork and sculpture was removed during Napoleon's time when the monks were also expelled and parts of the abbey used as a military hospital and... More

The basilica is impressive on the outside and the inside is also beautifully decorated with interesting artwork. Unlike Rome or Venice the wonderful churches in Padova are less crowded and much easier to enjoy. All of them are worth a visit and some will surprise you.

This Basilica is close to the Botanical Garden and Basilica di St. Antonio worth to see not as big as a St Antionio.

This is a fine monumental basilica, that has a prominent place even in a very monument-rich city as Padua. It is quite ancient, having been built in the 6th century, and - as often - extended and rebuilt several times in the next 12 centuries. It hosts the remains of St. Giustina and of a score of other saints, including... More

Not just a basilica that resembles the exterior of Sant'Antony, this is worth a visit on its own for its majestic interior.

The old antique part of the church is definitely a very interesting place to visit with nice frescoes and interesting architecture.

This Basilica is in the city centre of Padua (known as Padova to the locals) - it is a church where I experienced the quiet and tranquil presence of the Almighty - as I did in the beautiful city of Padua. Come and visit when you come to Padua - and remember to visit the Oval Park and for accommodation... More

Another huge church with an amazing side chapel that is well worth a visit. The information about it's restoration and history is worth the money and I would strongly advise you listen to it before you go in. There is a very primitive cage like structure which will set you thinking and a very pleasingly proportioned chapel awaiting you.

The church is very simple in its romanic style, but it's very closed to the magnificent square Prato della Valle and it's just a 1 minute walk from it. Once you enter the Basilica, go to the right side down to an "L" shaped corridor and you'll see a very ancient chapel (looking like a mini synagogue), but the major... More
