A very beautiful church that comes with a very interesting history. The catacombs are a must, make sure you leave time tor them. If you are lucky enough to be there for the festival you'll experience something special.

The miracle of the bleeding holy bread supposedly happened here and still stains from the droplets are visible on the altar. Very nice church and older altars

We were fortunate to be able to visit the Basilica whilst walking the Via Francigena. We were quite late leaving Bolsena, and stopped off to see the interesting interlinked churches. We entered the large church on the right of the complex; this was full of beautiful, large paintings, and had a reliquary of Santa Cristina on the left hand side... More
