Another beautiful building inside and out. Situated just off the Prato della Vallee, it is a big barn of a church, elegant in its simplicity. Make sure you see St Luke the Evangelists tomb.

This is a huge, ancient church with some remains of the original church which was the first Catholic Church in Italy. That part of it is very interesting but it is only a very small part of the cavernous church.

gorgeous and underrated! There was almost o one ehre when i visited, which is amazing considering they claim to have St Luke's body! The church has been damaged a few times so is not as old or as pretty as St Anthony;s, but only a few minutes walk away and free entry so very much worth seeing

This very old church has some very rare and unique items: namely the tomb of St. Luke the Evangelist as well as the tomb of the virgin martyr Giustina.

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 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.
