The church is unbelievably beautiful, the grounds are very well maintained. I was there during the Christmas holiday and the nativity was beyond anything I have ever seen.

Besides St. Anthony's remains, the inside of the cathedral has many beautiful frescoes to admire and they also run an orphanage, so donate when there, the reason I really went.

It's a beautiful church- not sure how to rate it. You are not allowed to take pictures inside. But are welcome to walk around inside and attend a mass if so desired. There are vendors all around the outside offering religious items for purchase.

I love cathedrals and old churches in general, but there was something about this one that really didn't inspire me. The design from outside is pretty odd and not particularly attractive. Inside is dark and gloomy without being uplifting. There are a few interesting elements...More

A huge, magnificent basilica! I can't believe, after all these years of hearing about it, that I've now actually been there! Very humbling & powerfully moving to touch the tomb of St. Anthony. Make sure, after your "touching moment" to view the amazing sculpted plaques...More
