    If you are visiting Bolsena or you are in the area, be sure to pay a visit to the Basilica. In addition to ballezza the basilica itself, there is the possibility to visit the relics of the Saint and down is best visited in the basement, the ancient cemetery carved into the stone ... what a truly beautiful and unique! At the entrance we found a gentleman who besides us tickets explained some history and then provides a booklet with various historical information to be consulted as you descend

    Basilica dedicated to s. Cristina martire. In the old town there is the tomb and the stone where there are the footprints of the Saint (it is said to be the one that had been tied x be thrown into the Lake ...). In the same there is preserved the marble where in 1264 there was the Eucharistic Miracle. A Teutonic priest with problems of faith step ' in this basilica and here at the time of consecration, as he held the host over the chalice, uttered the words rituals, this appeared visibly reddened of blood that dripped copiously wetting corporal ...

  • 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!
