On the Ponte degli Scalzi bridge in Venice, Italy.

The Ponte degli Scalzi ("bridge of the barefoot [monks]"), is one of only four bridges in Venice, Italy, to span the Grand Canal. A stone arch bridge, designed by Eugenio Miozzi, it was completed in 1934, replacing an Austrian iron bridge. It connects the sestieri of Santa Croce and Cannaregio. On the north side, Cannaregio, are the Chiesa degli Scalzi (Church of the Barefoot or Discalced Monks) and the Santa Lucia railway station. The south side, Santa Croce, is close to the Piazzale Roma bus station. (Text based on Wikipedia).

Inside the Basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme in Rome.

It is one of the Seven Pilgrim Churches of Rome. According to tradition, the basilica was consecrated around 325 to house the Passion Relics brought to Rome from the Holy Land by St. Helena of Constantinople, mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine I. At that time, the basilica floor was covered with soil from Jerusalem, thus acquiring the title in Hierusalem - it is not dedicated to the Holy Cross which is in Jerusalem, but the church itself is "in Jerusalem" in the sense that a "piece" of Jerusalem was moved to Rome for its foundation.

The church is built around a room in St. Helena's imperial palace, Palazzo Sessoriano, which she adapted to a chapel around the year 320. Some decades later, the chapel was turned into a true basilica, called the Heleniana or Sessoriana. After falling into neglect, the church was restored by Pope Lucius II (1144-1145). In the occasion it assumed a Romanesque appearance, with a nave and two aisles, a belfry and a porch. [...] The apse of church includes frescoes telling the Legends of the True Cross, attributed to Melozzo, to Antoniazzo Romano and Marco Palmezzano. (Text from Wikipedia).

The Chapel of the Passion Relics in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme in Rome.

This modern chapel, built in 1930, houses many relics of the Passion of Christ: two thorns from the crown of thorns; a nail from the Crucifixion; the Titulus, part of the Title of the Cross originally bearing the words "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews"; three splinters of the True Cross; a part of the cross of the good thief; fragments from the Pillar of the Scourging; and the finger that Saint Thomas placed in Christ's side.
