“You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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.

“A strange place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

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.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

From the first step inside you are surrounded by so much of history of the saints. The Stations of the Cross are so life-like that you feel as if you are there with the Lord. The guides were full of knowledge. Only disappointing thing was to not be able to see the True Cross and the Thorn from our Savior but it was still an incredible experience

“Relic rich chapel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Enjoyed our visit immensely. They had Carol who is so informed about the 5000 relics they have in the chapel, this history of the place and a very well stocked gift shop.
