Intricate frescoes blending in with statues has reliefs and other architectural elements. Sometimes difficult to tell apart frescoed figures from real ones which creates a surreal feeling. Worth visiting Padua just for that Basilica

This was a wonderful experience. It lived up to our expectations. Was not too crowded on the day we visited so we were able to have a good look around. Very good Cathedral shop.

Too many things to say, just do not miss it when you visit Padova. If the weather is nice, do not forget to visit the cloister.

Worth the visit, the entrance is free, but it won't change your views on life and religion. The inside is mostly baroque, a couple of frescoes are quite interesting.
