We were left in awe of St.Anthony's Basilica. The construction and architecture inside is stunning. The tomb area left us very emotional and we just sat in the basilica and felt peaceful. It was very quiet despite many visitors. A must visit if in Venice....More

The Basilica is wonderful. Besides all the marvelous artwork, it is the shelter to the mortal remains of Saint Anthony, including his uncorrupted tongue. It is a must go place in Padova.

Beautiful church. Filled with relics including the tomb of St. Anthony. The church itself is huge and it has a multitude of chapels and altars each more beautiful than the other. The architecture is amazing.

The Catholics loves relics and here is a whole chapel of them including the sarcophagus of San Antonio. You should go here and discover the very soul and nature of the Catholics. An interesting visit. Arrive early if possible.
