4.5
#153 of 525 in Historic Sites in Rome
Basilica Del Sacro Cuore Di Gesu 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.

  • It is very near Roma Termini Station. During weekdays, there are 4 masses in the morning starting at 6:30 am with the availability of the sacrament of reconciliation and a mass in the evening at 6 pm. On sundays, there are 4 masses in the morning starting at 7am and a mass in the evening at 6 pm.
  • The most beautiful chapel I have ever been in. I miss being there. I enjoyed every minute being in Italy. I hope to return soon.
