Personally, I think that this is the sacrest place in Europe. You feel so much peace and love there. Everything inspires to freedom and the true words of the Bible and Saint Antonio. All the christians would enjoy this place!

The number one place to visit in Padua whether you are religious or not. Free entry but it would definitely be worth a visit even if there was a ticket to pay. Make sure you also visit the chiostro located next to the basilica.

Beautiful church and the priest was very kind. Even they don't let my dog go inside, the priest came out to bless him.

This large church was build in XIV century as a funerary chapel. Beautiful frescoes are inside, 4 of them painted by Titian.
