One of the most magnificent structures in Padova, Italy, is the Basilica of Saint Anthony. The minor basilica was built shortly after the death of St. Anthony of Padua in 1232. However, construction works and modifications of St. Anthony's Basilica continued for decades. It was completed in 1310. Every single year, Christians from around the world usually visit the basilica as part of their pilgrimage.
The basilica is not just a Pontifical Minor Basilica, but also an international shrine and historical monument. This means you can visit the basilica not only to pray or for a confession, but also to marvel at the architectural masterpiece.Places nearby:
