How wonderful to have this chapel in Pittsburgh. It is such an interesting place, with it's history, relics and the feeling of serenity one gets from being there. There are taped tours that tell the story of it's being built and the interesting relics it holds. Great place to take a visitor too.

The tour guide called in sick the day we decided to visit this chapel high up the hills in downtown Pittsburgh. With ample parking and in a quiet neighborhood, this Chapel was built, I heard, from the 1880s... The stations of the cross on both sides of the church are life size. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to touch them... More

St Anthony's, a small but elaborate chapel houses the largest collection of religious relics in the world outside of the Vatican. When you go, you can get a personal tour by a guide or just look around yourself. I recommend the guide, they give the history of the chapel and the priest who saved the priceless relics and built then... More

Located in the Troy Hill section of Pittsburgh, this home to 5000 relics of saints is an interesting find. Best of all, the volunteer tour guide was amazing with a wealth of information about the founding of this chapel. As others have stated, this chapel houses the 2nd largest reliquery outside of the Vatican. Included among the 1st class relics... More

If you're a fan of relics, this is a hidden gem in Pittsburgh. It's not the easiest place to get to, as it's located on a tiny neighborhood street in the hills, but it is worth the effort to get there.

You will be amazed to find out what is kept at St. Anthony's Chapel. It houses the largest collection of relics outside of the Vatican. A lot of Pittsburghers don't know this place exists. Incredible, definitely worth the experience.

One needs to be a person of faith to visit this strange chapel which holds the relics of many saints (or what is believed to be authentic relics). It is worth a visit, if only to get a sense of this of this odd type of piety.
