From Ancona: Heart of Pius II

You never know what you will find in Catholic Italy: in 2005 I walked over this floor in Ancona.

The heart of Pope Pius II is located here behind the main altar of the cathedral. 

He died there while waiting for the kings of Europe to unite and respond to his call to send relief to to Greece which had been overrun by the Turks.

Thanks, Evan!
