I made my way to the Basilica di Santa Giiustina, the second most important pilgrimage site in Padova after the Basilica di San Antonio and reportedly the second-largest church in the world. It was indeed huge, but the ceiling and arches in the immense nave...More

Very similar in the architectural structure of the nearby San Francesco church, Santa Giustina isn't nearly as ornate or as stunningly beautiful inside, but is well worth seeing. The artwork and side chapels here are all very impressive and in many ways, the bareness of...More

Great roof and exterior shots. Inside is white and has a Calvinism feel to it. Church isn't as swamped with tourist like the other basilica.

A massive structure of the church. Regretly after 1900 not possible to get in. Impressive pkace in front which for sure at better season would be a pleasant turistic attraction.

We were on our way to visit St Anthony's but while walking across the Prato Della Valle we found this other huge Basilica. It is without the 'glitz' of St Anthony's, it was also much quieter and peaceful. Not being Catholic or indeed religious but...More

Coming from the Prato della Valle you might wonder which one is this magnificent building. This basilica is interesting from inside as well even if you are not that religious.

For an atheist, I do visit a great many churches, because some of the greatest artists in the world have their galleries inside them. This Benedictine abbey dates back to the 6th century. Can you imagine all these walls have witnessed, including its own destruction...More
