Corpus Domini is a religious and historical festival, set after the Pope declared a religious miracle after a local monk found blood on an alter cloth during a communion. The main event of the festival is the Corteo Storico, a parade of people of the town dressed in traditional costumes.
The festival combines history, tradition and religious celebrations and is one of the little marvels, which every traveler should witness.
