15 May Feria del Corpus de Granada 2018
Start date: 05.26.2018
Final date: 03.06.2018
The Corpus Fair is the biggest festival in the city. Each year, a Saturday starts at twelve
of the night with the lighting, lighting the thousands of bulbs on the cover, and the
Next Saturday with a fireworks show.
The fair atmosphere can be enjoyed both day and night. The elegant walk
horse cars loaded with people dressed in the typical regional costumes, the atmosphere
flamenco, the booths and all their ornaments cared for the smallest detail.
At the Granada fair, unlike others, the public stands are interspersed with the
private so that the visitor can freely access each of them.
During the week that lasts the fair it is necessary to emphasize 2 processions that cross the
Main streets of the city:
Every Wednesday of the fair, mid-morning, the Tarasca, a mannequin that wears the clothes that will be
fashionable in the following season, he walks around the city on the back of a fierce dragon
that seems to be surrendered at his feet. Thus the best kept secret, until its exit, is the
costume that will wear that day.
The big festival of Granada is organized around Thursday, departure from Corpus Christi, day
in which the whole city crammed the streets to contemplate the procession of the Most Holy
Sacrament of the Altar.
