Santa Croce in Gerusalemme Rome, Italy
Often overlooked by non-pilgrims, the Basilica di Santa Croce in Gerusalemme is located just down the road from St. John Lateran in Rome. It includes the private chapel of St. Helen (Emperor Constantine's mother), which occupies part of her 4th-century palace; an impressive collection of relics brought by Helen from Jerusalem (including parts of the True Cross and Doubting Thomas' finger); and a full-size replica of the Shroud of Turin.
