Corpus Christi of Granada

The Corpus fair is the biggest festival of the city. Every year, it begins on a Saturday at midnight with the “alumbrao”, lightning of the thousands of bulbs on the facade, and it ends the following Saturday with fireworks.

 

With more than five hundred years of antiquity, these celebrations of Corpus were realized for the first time under the real mandate. They are part of the most joyful traditions that the city preserves and throughout its history, they have served as parentheses in the daily life of the Granada, promoting a journey of healthy coexistence and fun.

 

On Sunday of the following week of the Corpus festivity, a small procession is celebrated around the Cathedral, the so-called Octave of the Corpus.
