The Color Brown and Cepia Tones: IL Santo

This is the brown entry to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:  The Color Brown and Sepia Tones.

The Basilica of Saint Anthony, from this angle is so unassuming, it caries in its facade the spirit of Franciscan rule of life.  Padua (Padova) is an important Italian pilgrimage destination, because of this.  Inside, one can find the incorruptible tongue of Saint Anthony of Padua, known for his miraculous intercessions.  The details of the piled adobes that make up this facade reminds me of the rings of trees that show how old they are; for indeed, the Church is old, and the spirit of humility itself is beyond old – it is as timeless as God Himself.



  1. Simply beautiful even though the facade looks very spartan compared to many more ornate churches in Italy.

  2. Such a gorgeous building. Thanks so much for participating. I appreciate it!
