This Gothic church, built to celebrate the so-called Miracle of Bolsena (1263 AD,) contains the sacred corporale (altar cloth) that is locked in a huge, jewel-encrusted casket and a number of magnificent frescoes by the 14th-century painter Ugolino di Prete, which describes the miracle.

Surprising find in a great location without the massive crowds seen in other locations. Small entrance fee, but well worth price. Don't miss the side chapels

Orvieto is one of my favorite day trips I took from Rome. There are so many things to do but one of the most beautiful sight there is definitely seeing this chapel in person. It is located in a plaza that is not overly crowded...More

The chapel is named after the altar`s cloth (Corporal), in which blood was shed during the miracle in Bolsena. It was difficult for modern man to understand the enthusiasm which was the motivation for the construction of this impressive Cathedral. The chapel of Corporale is...More

The Cappella del Corporate is a very special place. It is one of the reasons pilgrims visit Orvieto. Our group was able to have Mass in the chapel. Unfortunately the large reliquary which holds the corporal is no longer open for view. We were told...More

As per a number of my other reviews, We have been traveling for 6 weeks in Italy, and I really didn't think I would be knocked off my socks by another Italian town. Orvieto and the Capella del Corporate is a cant miss attraction!

The chapel of the Corporal was in use by an English speaking preacher so we had to come back later. The chapel has interesting 14th century frescoes.
