POI: 41.902700, 12.502620
Sacro Cuore di Gesú al Castro Pretorio (English: Sacred Heart of Jesus at the Praetorian Barracks) is a Roman Catholic parish and titular church in Rome, Italy. It was built in 1887 by Conte Francesco Vespignani (1842-1899), the Architetto dei Sacri Palazzi of Leo XIII, who also built the College of S. Anselmo on the Aventine Hill. The imposing statue of the Redeemer atop the campanile was erected only in 1931. Dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the church is served by the Salesian fathers. It has an adjoining boarding-school of arts and industries. The church was elevated to the status of a minor basilica in 1921.
