Corpus Festival is the most important festival of the city, it starts every year on Monday at midnight with the Encencido, that is to say, the lighting of the thousands of light bulbs on
the main gate and finishes on next Sunday with a fireworks show. For a whole week the celebrations fill the city. Flamenco performances, puppet shows, and processions like the Tarasca are
just some of the many events which take place during Corpus Christi.
