Sacred Heart

Church of the Sacred Heart, viale Risorgimento, Livorno
The construction of the Gothic Revival building began in 1919 and it is part of a compound of the Salesian fathers. The church became a parish in 1932.

The gold attracts the eye. Especially in sunshine, I imagine.

Is that mosaics above the door? It's beautiful.

Gothic Revival is always a style that appeals to me- and that certainly holds true with this church.

The billboard with the priest's picture clashes with the religious art on the front of this church, but this is a beautiful church which has a long history.
