Postcard from Italy: Sant'Antonio – Padua

photo_279_sant-antonio
I think that the church of Saint Anthony is by far the most interesting monument in Padua. It is an amazing combination of styles: Roman façade, Byzantine cupolas, Gothic central tower and bell-towers and late Renaissance chapel containing the tomb of Saint Anthony. Unfortunately, photos are not allowed inside. This is taken from the first set of cloisters.
Je trouve que l’église de Saint Antoine est de loin le monument le plus intéressant à Padoue. C’est un mélange étonnant de styles: façade romane, coupoles byzantines, tour centrale et clochers gothiques et chapelle renaissance tardive qui contient le tombeau de Saint Antoine. Malheureusement les photos sont interdites à l’intérieur. Celle-ci est prise du premier cloître.
