Church of the Sacred Heart of Suffrage, Rome

Rome's neogothic church known as the little Milan Cathedral.

The Church of the Sacred Heart of Suffrage is sometimes referred to as the Piccolo Duomo di Milano, or the little Milan Cathedral, thanks to its remarkable neogothic façade. The church also houses the Museum of the Souls of Purgatory whose walls contain the likeness of a human face, dating to a fire in 1897. The priest at the time believed the image was a soul in Purgatory making contact with the living. Located on the Lungotevere near the Corte Costituzionale, the Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio was designed by Giuseppe Gualandi and completed in 1917.
