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!

I've been waiting to visit St. Anthony's since I first learned about it 4 years ago. I found myself in Pittsburgh on my way to the Midwest and visited today. It was a huge disappointment. I love relics and go out of my way to see them. There are too many pieces in this collection, and they are displayed sloppily.... More

St. Anthony's Chapel is out of the way from the other main attractions but it is worth it. It is only open from 1 to 4 according to the website, and I recommend getting there right at 1 to hear the tour speaker point out the most important relics like the piece of the True Cross and other amazing relics....

This shrine has numerous relics of saints and other Catholic figures. The Stations of the Cross are full statues and the church has wonderful stain glasses windows. The tour guide is informative and is passionate about the Catholic faith. This is a great place to take a pilgrimage.
