Papal Palace in Orvieto

Jun 29, 2011

I have had a few comments on last Sunday’s Corpus Christi – Orvieto post.  One person reminded me that there is a Papal Palace beside the Duomo. I mentioned that when the miracle happened, Pope Urban IV was living down the road in Rome and heard about this. In fact he spent most of his papacy living in Orvieto and was living in Orvieto when the Bolsena miracle happened.
