Sacro Cuore di Gesù a Castro Pretorio, Rome
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Sacro Cuore di Gesù a Castro Pretorio 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.

Best gelato I've had in Italy.
Silvio MelazzoThe Church itself has nothing to shout about, if not the steeple, surmounted by a statue of Jesus, where you see all over Rome, but with access banned to the public. There is also a restored organ, which sounds very good.show original
