Description

One of the most important relics of Christianity, the True Cross, is kept inside it. This is the biggest preserved fragment of Christ's Cross. It forms part of a relic in Gothic style in the shape of a gilded silver cross. If you go to the monastery at any hour on the hour, you can attend an explanation, veneration and blessing of the True Cross. The Monastery has become a centre for pilgrimages during Jubilees. The Doorway of Forgiveness is opened during these years.
