THE TOWN OF
Its origins date back to the III century BC when it was populated by inhabitants who escaped from the destruction of Velzna, one of the most important Etruscan cities, destroyed by the Romans in 264 BC.
Bolsena inherited its name from Velzna, which classic sources have handed down to us in the Latin form Volsinii.
In 1263 an event of enormous consequences marked the history of Bolsena. In the Basilica, dedicated to Saints George and Cristina, at the moment of elevation during a mass celebrated by the Bohemian priest Pietro da Praga, drops of blood fell from the host onto the linen altar cloth and marble altar; both objects are still kept in the chapel of the Miracle of the Church of Saint Cristina, erected in the XI century. That Eucharistic miracle, whose fame went beyond the peninsula’s borders, lead Pope Urbano IV to institute throughout the Catholic world the festivity of Corpus Domini. Still today, on June 18, the festivity is remembered with a solemn procession that snakes its way through the city’s streets which are adorned by a continuous carpet of flowers of truly unique artistic style.
The evening of July 23 and the morning of July 24, Bolsena celebrates Saint Cristina, its Patron and martyr, with the representation of the Mysteries: Living pictures enacted on wood stages situated in the most important squares of Bolsena representing the martyrdom the Saint suffered.
Under the hill adjacent to the Collegiate Church and Chapel of the Miracle complex lie catacombs whose origins are traced back to the II and III centuries b.c., continuing up to the fifth century a.d. The Fortress (
