There's a long story about a priest who obtained all these relics. If you take the tour, they will explain it to you. This is a very holy, sacred place. A must-see!

This was truly amazing. I have been to Vatican City before and have not been this close to so many beautiful relics. Relics from Jesus, Blessed Mother Mary and the Apostles. Thorn, piece of the cross, piece of the table from Last supper. Many many...More

Take a tour and learn the amazing history of the collection of relics. Wooden statues from Germany are life size stations of the cross. Parking is available across the street.

I am unsure of the days or hours of operation because they do vary and are dependent upon just a few who maintain the site so worth viewing. Check website which I am not permitted to give but is saint anthonys chapel. org
