Every June, the Corpus Christi festival takes place in all of Spain but it is most famous in Granada. The city was the last Spanish town to be reconquered by the Christians and the Muslim religion was most rooted here, so Corpus Christi was taken very seriously by the Catholic kings. Although the history of Corpus Christi is religious, today the festival is celebrated in carnival style, with plenty of feasting and dancing, parades, and the annual Feria.
