Orvieto's Eucharistical Jubilee. A special itinerary through the Cathedral dedicated to pilgrims
The Opera del Duomo participates in the Bolsena Orvieto Jubilee celebrations by making available the suggestive itinerary through the Cathedral dedicated to the pilgrims; at the end of the Jubilee the itinerary will remain open to the public as a part of Orvieto's Opera del Duomo Museum.
The large vaults below the transversal nave, that have been used up to now as storage areas for the many materials coming from the century-old Duomo worksite, will open to welcome the physical and spiritual pilgrimage approaching the sacred relic kept in the Corporal Chapel.
From the southern side of the Cathedral, facing the Bishop's Palace, the flow of pilgrims will be guided through to the other side, in order to enter the Duomo via the Holy Door, that is the Corporal Door, which is closest to the place representing the symbol of the Jubilee.
This hidden and silent route has been conceived as a moment of preparation and meditation, a place inside, which is also an inner place where mind and spirit are purified before accessing the light and reconciliation offered by the Cathedral; here, following the Jubilee tradition and consciousness of faith, the plenary indulgence can be obtained as granted by the Pontiff for the entire duration of the extraordinary Jubilee, which will be celebrated from 13 January 2013 until 16 November 2014.
Registered pilgrims may follow the Route free of charge.
