Amazing place

Well worth a visit. The world's largest collection of relics in the world. However, for non-Catholics, it may seem a bit strange!

Tucked into a quiet street on Pittsburgh's North Side, St. Anthony's is supposedly home to one of the world's largest collection of Catholic relics. It is *loaded* with bits and pieces ensconced in gold, silver, and crystal-- some of the pieces are said to be human, others things saints have touched. Frankly, it's bizarre-- but it's a one-of-a-kind place. The... More

A tour of this chapel is a real eye opener whether or not you are Roman Catholic. The relics are outstanding and the history of the founder is fascinating.

Even if you aren't Catholic or aren't even religious you will feel the atmosphere of peace and holiness when you walk through the door. In addition to just the plain beauty of the chapel and the wooden figurines (stations) there is a collection of relics second only to the collection at the Vatican !!! Right here in Pittsburgh, who knew... More

This is an amazing place! To think that Pittsburgh has the most relics outside the Vatican is hard to believe!

This church is beautiful, the items on display are amazing, not just for Catholics, but also for the curious as well as the history buffs. My only complaint was that the "tour" that we sat through was very long, and though parts of it were interesting with regards to the history of the community, the delivery was rather dry and...

We have all heard of the religious and historical treasures housed at Saint Anthony's. Do not tour this site without a docent. Our docent Carol was professional, knowledgeable, and a joy to spend time with.

Absolutely beautiful old, ornate church. Well worth the time to visit and look at the excellent 19th Century craftsmanship.
