St. Valentine was venerated for his love of God in Italy during Roman rule, --it is said that he married Christian couples against the order of the Ceasar and was martyred for this.

   

The photo is of a shrine to St. Valentine, said to contain his remains (although given that 1700 years has past, no one really knows), in the small town of Goldach, St. Gallen, Switzerland, overlooking beautiful Lake Constance.  The church, St. Mauritius Catholic Church, has an open door policy until 7PM, so no appointment is necessary to visit his schrine.
