Peace, tranquility and feeling closer to God

If you want to sit and reflect on God -- no other place compares. Viewing the relics are particularly interesting. Love the peace and tranquility.

Nice place with interesting artifacts. Has a really old feel to it. It was kind of haunting to have so many artifacts in one place. You would never suspect there was a museum inside unless you knew it was there.

St. Anthony's Chapel is one of the world's largest reliquaries. Only the Vatican and Jerusalem lay claim to more religious relics. Consequently, a visit to St. Anthony's Chapel will resonate and impact depending upon one's own religious beliefs. As a practicing Catholic and a true believer, St. Anthony's Chapel is a testimony to the tradition, dedication, focus, and spiritual power... More

I finally got around to stopping by for a tour of chapel and was amazed by how truly beautiful the chapel is. When you first enter, you encounter life-size statues of the Stations of the Cross. Then, looking up, you see the outstanding stained glass windows. As you proceed into the nave of the church toward the sanctuary, you see... More

According to an info sheet, this little chapel contains relics only second in number to the Vatican. And all because of a Old Europe priest. So much to see and even with the talk by the docent no real way to take it all in.

Such a beautiful place, evn for a non-Catholic. You can practically feel the halo that shines around this lovely chapel. A must-see for any lover of religious art.

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.
