At the beginning of the second millenium, many pilgrims crossed Europe. They created a net of paths, tracks and roads, with a place of pilgrimage at their start and end. The Via Francigena was one of the most important routes the pilgrims took at that time connecting the British Isles with Rome. Bolsena was one stop on this route and its significance can be traced back to the miracles of the Corpus Domini.
