St. Anthony of Padua was born in the end of the 12th century in a wealthy family of Lisbon, but devoted his life to church. As a young man, he left for a missionary journey to Morocco, Africa, but he was stricken down by a severe illness and was compelled to sail back. The stormy sea drove his ship to the Sicily Island from where Anthony journeyed to Assisi where he became a member of the Order of Grey Friars.

Even some alleged miracles are connected to his person; the best known legend speaks about Anthony's sermon on a Rimini beach where even fish put their heads out of water to hear the preacher's words.
