... The relic was in an elaborate, gold nook where you would walk through, kiss the relic's glass box, and continue on back into the rest of the church.

Nena gave a brief description of the importance of the crypt which was the place where St. Demetrius was tortured and killed.

In the past, there have been earthquakes which have been destroying part of the preservation but it was still incredible to see.
