The altar is in the Sanctuary of Santa Cristina, a stage of pilgrims on the ancient Via Francigena to Rome. Here took place the Eucharistic miracle of Bolsena in 1263 when a priest was celebrating Mass saw the Host bleeding was during his consecration as the Body of Christ. Pope urban IV, who was in nearby Orvieto, was informed of the incident and sent his bishop to take control and collect the sacred bloody linen. These relics are preserved in the Cathedral of Orvieto.
