Saint Anthony’s Basilica

Share with:

Commonly nicknamed Il Santo by Paduans, Saint Anthony’s Basilica is the main monument of Padua. The basilica was completed towards the end of the thirteenth century and, although the architect who designed it remains unknown, the skilful combination of Romanesque and Gothic styles gave life to a completely original work that represents a true masterpiece.

If you are planning a visit to the basilica, do not miss the Chapel of the Relics, which houses the remains of Saint Anthony, patron saint of Padua: a fascinating experience but not suited for those who are easily repulsed!
