Prato della Valle
One of the largest squares in Europe, as well as the most famous in Padua, Prato della Valle with its striking statues and green grass, is the symbol of our city and a meeting place for all Paduans.
From the shape inspired by the patrician garden so dear to Veneto tradition, this square is adorned with 78 statues depicting famous people of the past: they are the most illustrious citizens of the city, Paduan by birth or adoption. Have fun discovering them all!
The square has always held economic and recreational functions that continue to this day: the large city market, as well as numerous events, take place here throughout the year.
