St Anthony Chapel was recently featured in SMITHSONIAN magazine. I was planning a trip to Pittsburgh and added it to my "must-see" list. Not far from downtown Pittsburgh, St Anthony Chapel seems like a non descript Catholic church from the outside, but wait until you...More

I used to stop by this chapel in the early 1960s returning from school. It was old, very dark, and poorly cared for. Nevertheless, there were a number of extraordinary features of the chapel. First, it was claimed to have the largest collection of relics...More

We visited the chapel during Holy Week. There are so many relics from different saints! The Stations of the Cross are the most beautiful I have ever seen. They are life-size and just amazing.

Have been wanting to see St. Anthony's for quite some time. I heard about the life size stations of the cross. Truly awesome. The chapel also has over 5000 relics currently. Volunteers are present to give a little history of the chapel and to answer...More

While I am not a Christian or a Catholic, I found the energy of the chapel to be otherworldly and excellent. It is quite beautiful inside and like other's have noted, the labeling on the relics is minute and impossible to read. I was disappointed...More

I am unsure of the days or hours of operation because they do vary and are dependent upon just a few who maintain the site so worth viewing. Check website which I am not permitted to give but is saint anthonys chapel. org
