Santa Croce in Gerusalemme: In Centre of Apse

In Centre of Apse

In the centre of the apse, against the wall, is the tomb of Cardinal Quiñones (died 1536). This is an unusual place for a tomb, and even more unusual is the fact that a Tabernacle for the Blessed Sacrament is incorporated in the tomb. It was designed by Jacopo Sansovino.
