Even if you aren't Catholic or aren't even religious you will feel the atmosphere of peace and holiness when you walk through the door. In addition to just the plain beauty of the chapel and the wooden figurines (stations) there is a collection of relics second only to the collection at the Vatican !!! Right here in Pittsburgh, who knew... More

This is an amazing place! To think that Pittsburgh has the most relics outside the Vatican is hard to believe!

This church is beautiful, the items on display are amazing, not just for Catholics, but also for the curious as well as the history buffs. My only complaint was that the "tour" that we sat through was very long, and though parts of it were interesting with regards to the history of the community, the delivery was rather dry and...

We have all heard of the religious and historical treasures housed at Saint Anthony's. Do not tour this site without a docent. Our docent Carol was professional, knowledgeable, and a joy to spend time with.

Absolutely beautiful old, ornate church. Well worth the time to visit and look at the excellent 19th Century craftsmanship.

Second only to the Vatican in religious objects. Hard to believe all that is contained in the chapel. Well worth a visit, even if you are not a believer!

Overall the church is pretty inside and offers prayer candles to light. If you are like us and did not know what a religious relic is, you will probably be disappointed. Many of the relics were very small and difficult to read/see. We spent about 30 minutes in St. Anthony Chapel and felt that was plenty. The religious store across... More

Beautiful life size stations of the cross are constructed with meticulous details. Do the tour. The relics are extraordinary. What an amazing man that spent his life's earnings on building this special church.
