Every year on 6 December - Saint Nicolas day - a flask is lowered into the tomb to collect some of the myrrh that is said to exude from the relics.
This myrrh is shipped around the world and sold in the church shop and has been associated with a number of miracles.
The Basilica di San Nicola is the most important of the two and this 11th century Romanesque church was built to bury some of the remains of Santa Claus!
These relics of Saint Nicolas (Sant Claus) are still in the crypt today and the Basilica is an important Catholic and Orthodox Christian pilgrim destination.
