It is a must see in Padova. The divinity of the place will touch your heart, it will bring peace and happiness.

This is the heart of the church area. Many shops & restaurants surround the piazza. Lovely to just stroll and browse or grab a bite to eat. Be mindful that there is traffic.

Enjoyed the view at this Piazza before entering the church. The front of the church is so beautiful and the Statue of Gattamelata on a horse is impressive

The Piazza is not really of notable size and isn't a square at all. This is really the space infront of the Basilica of Sant Antonio and to be honest has many stalls selling tourist goods like church related items, postcards, fridge magnets and souvenir...More

Just people and vendors that have to be endured to enter the basilica. If you are lucky enough the crowds will be light for a good photo of the facade.
