Description:

Better known to English visitors as The Basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem, the Santa Croce in Gerusalemme has been in operation since 325 A.D. The emperor Constantine and his mother Helena changed a large room in the imperial palace Sessorium and ordained it to become this church. The history of this basilica is long and the appearance has varied over the years. The current Baroque appearance was established during the tenure of Benedict XIV (1740-1758), before he ascended to the papacy. Several relics of disputed authenticity reside at Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, causing it to be a popular destination of Catholic tourists.
