The "Manna of Saint Nicholas" is transparent pure water formed in the Saint's tomb. When it is removed each May, the monks mix it with holy water and place it in smaller bottles, painted by local artists, for people to keep in their homes for devotional use.

These bottles are available in the Basilica shop
