Posto fino a poco tempo fa a me sconosciuto. Vista mozzafiato sul golfo di Manfredonia.. Un luogo di silenzio e di riflessione, ma allo stesso tempo magico. Da visitare assolutamente. Visita gratuita, in quanto si può accedere tramite un cancello che si può aprire facilmente con un pulsante per non far entrare gli animali in pascolo libero. A chi piace la natura e il silenzio, è il luogo ideale.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
