The church is one of the seven Pilgrim churches in Rome and was consecrated circa 325 to maintain the relics of the Passion of the Christ. During the consecration, the floor of the church was covered with soil from Jerusalem giving the church its name.
Today the church is known for its beautiful architecture and design and also accommodates a hotel within its walls. A few concerts were also held here a number of celebrities were welcomed through its doors.
However, the church is still loved for its tranquil atmosphere, spirituality and intricate art and a visit here will be well worth the time.

A magnificent church housing the relics of the True Cross on which the God-Man shed His Precious Blood for the salvation of the world. The relics are found downstairs in the crypt. The sanctuary upstairs is beautifully decorated and the acoustics are fabulous.
Beautiful, often overlooked church. Don't judge a book by its cover. This particular church is much nicer inside than you might think from outside.
A beautiful experience for all Christians, no matter what denomination. The shroud is awe inspiring, the cross that has been made around the pice of the holy cross is beautiful and as you make your way through the hallways you find your self in a truly beautiful chapel, that is Constantine’s mother’s original chapel and the cathedral was built around it. A truly wonderful experience.
I liked the church but could not reach the croo part to see.
There is a life size statue of Christ as he would look after the scourging and the Crusification. So painful and moving that I wept and wept .
