Located in the Troy Hill section of Pittsburgh, this home to 5000 relics of saints is an interesting find. Best of all, the volunteer tour guide was amazing with a wealth of information about the founding of this chapel. As others have stated, this chapel houses the 2nd largest reliquery outside of the Vatican. Included among the 1st class relics (pieces of bones, fragments, splinters) are the tooth of St. Anthony of Padua and the sarcophagus with the remains of St. Ursula. Fascinating visit.
No photography inside the church, but photos are available at the shop across the street + books about the shrine are available for a minimal price.
