Anthony de Padua, born Fernando Martins de Bulhões was a Catholic saint, well known as the patron saint of the opressed and "lost things". Born to a wealthy Portuguese merchant family, he abandoned his life of wealth to enter a Dominican convent against his family's wishes. Eventually, he joined the Franciscan Order, and began preaching throughout the Mediterranean and Lombardy, as well as a failed mission to Morocco. He died of dropsy in 1231 after a retreat in the Italian countryside, and was burried in Padua. Less than one year after his death, he was cannonized by Pope Gregory IX.

A sanatorium was dedicated to him in Nazca, Peru.
