Tour of the Church (Part 2)


Entering the main church, we first come to the shrine of St Anthony of Padua. Saint Anthony is a popular figure among Catholics. He was born in Lisbon, and eventually became a Fransciscan friar, and after a career that took him throughout Italy and France, finally settled near Padua in northern Italy.

Saint Anthony is patron of the poor, and also invoked for aid in finding things that have been lost.
