Located in the off-the-beaten-path residential neighborhood of Troy Hill, St. Anthony's Chapel is a hidden gem. It features hundreds of relics from saints, which are displayed throughout the church, and I believe it is one of the largest collections of relics outside of the Vatican. It is not open all the time, so check the website for hours and tour... More

With over 4000 relics, this chapel is quite beautiful and unique. The Stations of the Cross are life size and very detailed. There is a feeling of holiness that is quite soothing. Tours are available; you should definitely take one, they're free!

A must see for any Christian visiting the city, or living here. The largest collection of relics in the US. The life-size Stations of the Cross are particularly impressive, especially this time of year (Lent). We make sure we visit at least once a year, and introduce someone new to the site each time.

A place for the devout Catholic or history buff. The amount of relics is mind boggling and the life sized stations of the cross are something you don't see everyday. The story of the construction and restoration is amazing. A definite must see.

I am 55 years old, born in the Burgh and had no idea this was in our beautiful city! Tons of relics! Getting a tour after 30 minutes was difficult. But glad we did or the trip would not have been as memorable or educational. The gift shop is across the street, and could use a facelift. But everything is... More

The volume of relics will amaze you. It's a gem hidden in the big city of Pittsburgh. If you are a believer you will be moved, if you are a non-believer you'll have plenty to think about!

What a beautiful chapel inside with all of the great statues and Stations of the Cross . also the many reliques that are gathered there. You felt very welcomed when you came into the church and the Docent Greg was very excited to show us the church. Only thing is it is hard to find the Chapel on Troy Hill... More

Located in Troy Hills, 10 minutes outside downtown Pittsburgh, the chapel was built in the 1880's and renovated in the 1970's. It is a beautiful and serene facility that harkens back to a time when the Catholic Church served the needs of Pittsburgh's huge Eastern European ethnic communities. The chapel is home to a collection of over 7,000 reliquaries that... More

Take the time to find and visit St. Anthony's Chapel on the North shore. Participate in a tour by one of the volunteers. The history of all the many relics is very interesting, especially the story of St. Anthony's tooth. A moving experience!
