  • In June and last week I have attended this church. I didn't know her, the more I was surprised by the spiritual power of this church. It implies significant relics of Christianity. Saint Helena brought back them from their journey to Palestine to Rome. The story of St. Helena is very interesting and this figure combines several churches in Palestine/Israel with the Church of the Hl.Kreuz in Rome. This Basilica is in itself not very palatial, turned more inward. Here you can feel the power of the place, in silence, in prayer, in the contemplation of the relics and the Crypta. The village is also a journey through time. Groups of pilgrims entered the building, the Pilgrim Church in resonance. It is very worth a visit!

  • The Church of St. The cross of Jerusalem is near the Basilica of San Giovanni, at the Pontifical Lateran University. Characteristic of the Church are numerous figures-statues erected at the Church. For the pontificate of Benedict XIV, the Church was rebuilt in Baroque style. Little remains of the granite columns. Currently you can see only eight. The other closed concrete pillars. Perfectly preserved while the floor in the style of Cosmatich, as well as frescoes depicting Jesus and scenes associated with the discovery of the cross. In the church there is also a relic. In the Chapel to the left of the Church are kept fragments of the cross of Jesus, part of the inscription on the cross, thorns from the Crown of thorns, a nail from the cross, and your finger. Thomas. I would recommend to stay here, because it is unique compared to other church temples in Rome.
