Padova is a city in the Veneto region, an important center of artistic, cultural and religious importance, which houses one of the most renowned universities in Italy.
The city is the oldest in Northern Italy and it is surrounded by 11 km of walls dating from the 16th century.
In its historical center there are examples of great artistic significance such as the Palazzo della Ragione, full of frescoes.
Among the religious buildings, we remember the famous Scrovegni Chapel, the most famous after the Sistine Chapel, for the richness of frescoes inside.
Among the many art treasures, we must remember that Padua each year attracts millions of tourists because it is known worldwide as the city of St. Anthony, the famous French Portuguese friar born in Lisbon in 1195, who lived in Padua until his death.
Here today we can visit the Basilica dedicated to him, built a few months after his death, where the Saint's relics are kept, and after a few years, the sanctuary was already showing its domes, minarets and the radiating chapels, adorned in the years following special works of art created between the thirteenth century and the present day.
In this place the atmosphere is special, the example of the Saint's life draws people to a deep reflection during a visit to the beautiful decorated chapel.
For those who want to fully understand the religious track of the city, you just have to visit the many religious buildings that populate it, including colors, sounds and aromas typical of the Veneto region which take back to ancient times, where the clock for Padua has stopped.
