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.

I visited St. Anthony's Chapel for the first time last Saturday. I was somewhat concerned that I had made a wrong turn as I wound through very narrow streets. The Chapel is astounding with nearly 6,000 relics. The Stations of the Cross are awe-inspiring. The tour was excellent and gave a good perspective of the Chapel and its amazing collection.... More

Had no idea this was in Pittsburgh! Tons of cool artifacts! However, getting a tour was difficult. The gift shop lady kept telling us someone was over there, but we couldn't find her, despite trying for 20 minutes. We bummed you couldn't take photos and it was hard to figure out what was what without a guide. It was extremely... More

Anyone with an interest in this site should review their website. It is amazing how this chapel is located in what seems like a lower middle class neighborhood. The stations of the cross were imported from Germany in the nineteenth century by a Belgium priest from a rich family. He also managed to secure a collection of relics that is... More

Despite having lived in Pittsburgh for 24 yrs I only recently discovered this gem when my son's confirmation class made a trip to Fr. Mollinger's reliquary. The chapel is delightful and the relics irrespective of their provenance are spectacular. Well worth a detour to Germantown for any Christian. Although beautifully restored the catalog of relics could use a little work... More

This was the one place I wanted to visit while in Pittsburgh. Over 5,000 religious relics, second only to the Vatican. It is absolutely stunning. The almost life size, hand carved from Italy Stations of the Cross are stunning. It is only open from 1-4 6 days a week and they do tours on the hour. We were crunched for... More
