Basilica of St. Anthony, Padua
One of the most important pilgrimage churches in the Catholic world, the Basilica of St. Anthony, or, as it is commonly known – “Il Santo” – houses the body of the famous 13th-century Franciscan saint, who is the patron saint of lost things. In 1453, Donatello moved to Padua to produce a series of extraordinary statues for the church, including the “Gattamelata,” a bronze “Crucifix,” and more than 20 other bronze statues and reliefs for the high altar of the great church, which are still there today! Buon viaggio!
