"Charity is the soul of faith, makes it alive; without love, faith dies."
- St. Anthony of Padua
Padua is a city in northern Italy, about 25 miles west of Venice and hosts the University of Padua, founded in 1222, where Galileo Galilei was a lecturer.
We were in Padua for only a few days and saw a fraction of what there is to see.
I took several photographs of the Prato della Valle. It is a beautiful, not-to-be-missed place if you visit Padua. Prato della Valle, a 90,000 square meter elliptical square, is the largest square in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. There are 78 statues, made from stone of Vicenza between 1775 and 1883, by various artists.
