4.6
#147 of 526 in Historic Sites in Rome
Basilica Del Sacro Cuore Di Gesu features a lavish interior adorned with colorful stained glass windows, mosaics, frescoes, and coffered ceilings carved in red, blue, and gold. As you enter, notice the mosaic above the main doorway of this 19th-century structure, depicting angels venerating the Sacred Heart. The fresco in the dome over the sanctuary and the gilded wooden relief in the ceiling also represent the image of the Sacred Heart. Look up to see how the skylight in the roof near the crossing illuminates the choir, and round-headed windows divide the arches of a dome bearing the frescoes of the twelve prophets. Next to the church is a boarding school of arts and industries, also run by the Salesian Society.

  • Rome is a city-museum, as well as just a huge city, where sometimes you want to hide somewhere from the chaos and crowds of people. You can find shelter at every turn, in Rome more than 900 churches, each of which is a real masterpiece. And what's great is that churches usually don't have many visitors. The facade of the basilica is made in the neo-Renaissance style. The interior of the temple has three naves, separated by columns of granite, with a tran-eppt and a dome. Be sure to go inside. The golden statue serves as an excellent landmark.

  • Great place to meet people and learn Italian
  • The most beautiful chapel I have ever been in. I miss being there. I enjoyed every minute being in Italy. I hope to return soon.
  • Beautiful Besilica build by St. John Bosco. A place to find peace in the busy city of Rome. At the heart of Rome in termini. Visit it and experience the warmth of the Salesians.
  • Bult by St. John Bosco
  • The Basilica founded by saint John Bosco. Strongly charismatic place for friends of DB ... where he understood the plan of God with him few months before his death. Rooms of don Bosco available for pilgrims.
