Feast of Corpus Christi
Feast of the Eucharist through the narrow streets of the Historic Centre of Coria.
The religious holiday, whose dates vary within the Christian calendar, takes place on the Sunday following Pentecost as it depends on the celebration of Easter. Its main highlight is the solemn Procession of the Eucharist through the Historic Centre of the City of Coria, presided over by the Bishop of the Diocese accompanied by the Canonry and the Municipal Corporation holding maces. It brings together the people of Coria to finally unveil, from the Town Hall balcony, the Standard Bearer, the Queen and the Maids of Honour of the Fiestas of San Juan.
The delicious “perrunillas” (traditional biscuits), “floretas” (flower-shaped traditional sweets), gazpacho, and the traditional Ponche (Spanish liqueur), transform this day into a grand feast with which the newly proclaimed Standard Bearer entertains his neighbours and visitors, a tradition celebrated since ancient times, in an act of gratitude for their presence in his official appointment in the jam-packed Plaza de San Pedro.
