A beautiful chapel, decorated in frescoes from 1376 (most of them in very good condition) presenting scenes from the lives of s. George, Catherine, Lucy and The Holy Family. There are not many tourists, probably because the entrance costs 3 EUR :) Go there!
This is well worth seeing even if your time in Padua is short.The Scuola has some early Titian paintings and the picture of the kneeling donkey is lovely. The oratorio is smaller but no less interesting with frescoes of various saints,and you can see the influence of Giotto here.Whether you see it before the Basilica or after is irrelevant as... 更多
Maybe worth going here before the basilica next door. We did it the other way round and this oratory seemed so small and having had my visual senses completely blasted by the interior of the basilica - it was hard to pay attention to the beautiful friezes here.
Interesting, but felt superfluous after visiting the Santo next door. I think only 5 euro for the Oratorio and Scoletta. If saving money, just opt for the Scoletta. The Santo is free.
The Oratorio and the Scuola di Saint Anthony are fabulous! You enter into the Oratorio and then the guide will take you upstairs to the scuola. No pictures allowed! (Unless you are crafty). The frescoes are fabulous and much older than what you will find in the Basilica.
Only in Padova would this be overlooked! It's next door to the church of San Antonio, really lovely frescoes and we had the place to ourselves! Capella degli Scrovengni rightly attracts lots of visitors, but this is virtually unknown.
Conveniently located adjacent to the Basilica (Il Santo), the oratory is a small chapel decorated with very interesting frescoes in the style of Giotto (probably by his students). They tell stories of St. George and St. Lucy. It is fun to try to decipher the paintings. A good handout with a guide to the paintings is provided when you enter.... 更多
Its beside the Basilica of St Antonio , so while you are there if it is open you should take a look . It is richly decorated with some good paintings and an interesting little building with a rich history all about which you can read about when you are there.
