The Church of Santa Croce

The Church of Santa Croce (Saint Cross Church) was once the chapel of the Saint Leonard's Hospital in Treviso and it is so called for the relic of the Holy Cross, which was kept there. It had been donated to the Hospital by Paul of Sassoferrato. The external facade of the building, which is located between Palazzo della Dogana and the most recent building of the hospital, is made of brick and Istrian stone and it is divided by four Corinthian pillars. Nowadays the church has become an Auditorium.
