Cappella degli Scrovegni

The Cappella degli Scrovegni in Padua, Italy, is a small yet significant church boasting a masterpiece of Western art. Built in the early 14th century, it houses a remarkable cycle of frescoes by Giotto di Bondone, completed in 1305. These frescoes are widely celebrated for their innovative techniques and emotional depth and are considered a turning point in the development of Italian painting. It is interesting to note that the chapel enjoys the status of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The chapel, named after its patron Enrico Scrovegni, is a must-see for any visitor interested in art history or medieval culture. Reservations are recommended due to its popularity.

Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua

The Pontifical Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua is a revered Catholic church in Padua, Italy. Dedicated to Saint Anthony, a renowned Franciscan friar, the Basilica serves as a pilgrimage destination for millions worldwide. Construction began in 1232, shortly after Saint Anthony's death, and was completed by 1310. The Basilica's architecture blends Romanesque, Byzantine, and Gothic styles. Inside the tomb of Saint Anthony, you can find a collection of frescoes that are truly worth admiring. This church is a must-visit for history as well as art lovers.

Palazzo della Ragione

Together, with the Basilica di Sant'Antonio, Palazzo della Ragione is a symbol of the city. Built in the 13th Century CE, it is called the Salone, because of its large room with its wooden vaulted ceiling (destroyed and rebuilt many times over the centuries), making it the largest undivided hall in the world. The piazza and the bustling daily market are dominated by its loggia. It was a real layman's center in the city. Justice was carried out in the upper rooms, adorned with frescoes of astrological depictions (perhaps even by Giotto). If the sentence was serious, the accused would be taken to one of the local prisons. The building also houses a large wooden horse that Annibale Capodilista had made for a merry-go-round and then donated to the city. On the ground floor, traditional commercial activities took place, as they still do today.

Palazzo del Bo

Home to the university since the 16th Century, the building dates back to the same time, and was then renovated in the 20th Century. The best-preserved area is the interior courtyard, with its porticoes decorated with coats of arms of the noble families, to which the students belonged. It housed the first anatomical theater in the world (1594) and the desk of Galileo Galilei, a teacher of mathematics. Hours vary as per season and guided tours are also available on weekdays and subject to availability.

Orto Botanico

Established in 1545, the Botanical Garden of Padua is the oldest surviving university botanical garden in the world. Originally intended to grow medicinal herbs for medical students, it now houses a vast collection of over 6,000 species of plants. The garden is divided into different sections, showcasing plants from various geographical environments, including a Mediterranean section, an alpine section, and a greenhouse for tropical plants. Recognized for its historical importance, the garden was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
