Church where a Eucharistic miracle took place. Definitely worth a visit.
I'm from Rome where there is no shortage of churches number talking. But Santa Cristina in Bolsena is special. As you enter you feel welcomed in a haven of peace and we look back in time at every step. The left aisle leads to the Chapel of the miraculous whose altar houses the blood-stained stones, of the Eucharistic Miracle (1263) that millions of pilgrims from around the world come to visit. But even more impressive in my opinion is the adjacent Cave of Santa Cristina, which gives access to the Christian Catacombs. Exposed in this cave is a large stone (transformed into mensa of the altar) that legend has it started to float rather than get to the bottom (during one of the many tortures to which santa was subjected, masterfully recalled during the feast of santa Cristina with beautiful tableaux vivants). The stone carry santa Cristina to the Bank and she descending left (other Prodigy) imprinted the footprints of his feet, which we can still admire. How much mystery and how much history can be felt in this place!
Important Basilica, where an important Eucharistic Miracle and where lie the remains of the great Santa Cristina, venerated by Bolsena. Well worth exploring, because posted in a lovely city.
