The Basilica has much more to offer than any other famous catholic church around the world. Wonderful artistic works are inside and a really nice atmosphere for pilgrimage.

History and time, craftmanship and grandeur, all wrapped up in this Basilica. Worth a visit or if you have time, attend a service.

A simple MUST SEE! Entry is free and for what you will experience, you will never regret it. Unfortunately, or fortunately, you can not take photos so all I can say is GO!

It is one of the highlights of Padova. Inside there is the grave of the holy Antonius. You pray for him, that he intercedes by God and Jesus, if you want to find something. People donate big candles at this grave. Also interesting art works...More

In this church the Saint San Antonio is buried. Famous for getting husband to the single women when they turn their image and they pray to him. Beyond the Catholic, the church is a work of art that is worth visiting. Of Gothic, Romanesque, Renancentist...More

The interior is absolutely gorgeous! Taking a photo is not allowed so just relax and soak in the atmosphere. You won’t see anything like this anywhere else!

Having grown up in Padova, I can easily say this is the best building you'll see in town. Better than the Scrovegni chapel, hands down (and it's free). Not as good as the Basilica in Venice, but sure worth an hour's tour. Enjoy your visit!

The size and beauty of this basilica is not to be missed if you are in Padua. Pictures can’t do it justice. You could spend hours admiring it from all angles

You can visit any time. During Mass, the seats in front of the main altar are cordoned off and reserved for Mass goers only. However, there's plenty to see around the sides of the basilica and in the cloisters. As soon as... More
