It's next to the Basilica of Sant'Antonio, to whom it owes its name . It can't be therefore quiet. There are always tourist groups visiting the town but also worshipers coming from every corner of the whole world. Even so, it's not so crowded. You never have the feeling that you lose your group or your belongings. The stalls around have mostly objects connected with Saint Anthony.
The Basilica and the Saint's School cover most part of the square. The remaining area shows some characteristic old buildings of Padua with a lot of French windows and colourful balconies.
In the middle of the square you can't miss Donatello's equestrian bronze statue of Erasmo da Narni also known as Gattamelata.
Weather permitting you may have your Espresso here to listen to the poliphony of the visitors and take photos of the huge Basilica from different points of view.
