Overview

Corpus Christi, the religious festival dates back to the 16th century and entails a procession, early in the morning, which consists of the religious associations and public corporations that accompany the pasos (portable platforms mounted on wheels carrying statues) of saints such as Saint Just and Saint Rufina, Saint Isidore, the Immaculate Conception, the Baby Jesus, Saint Leandro, Saint Ferdinand, and the monstrance, which is made in gold brought from the New World. A silver altar is installed in the fa├žade of the town hall for the procession, as are others of similar characteristics on the streets through which the procession passes. At the same time, the Seises (children dressed in traditional outfits from the 16th Century), dance and sing before each of the altars.
