Chapel of the Finding of the Cross

The Chapel of the Finding of the Cross is believed to be the place where Queen Helena uncovered in the early 4th century pieces of wood, and one, healing a sick women by miracle, was identified as part of the “True Cross”. 

Archaeolgical investigation suggests the chapel was originally a quarry, and later a water reservoir. The local tradition argues that later the place became a dump site, and so the cross used for the crucifixion of Jesus was thrown there after use. Yet when it was rediscovered, it miracously healed a sick women, proving it is indeed the “True Cross”.
