A very big, popular and beaitifull church in the center of Padova. Especially for catholics the holy st Anthony tombe is important. more »
This is one of the most beautiful, eclectic and unusual churches I have ever visited. Colourful, rich in decoration, history, beautifully moving and I am not even catholic! A MUST SEE! The colourful altars, the reliquary, St. Anthony’s tomb and the cloistered gardens... just stunning beauty. We spent hours studying all the amazing art, sculptures and details.
I had wonderful relaxing time here. This church is really big, with beautiful designs inside. It's a free entrance. So, you can enter and relax however longer you need to. Recommended, if in the town !!!
