Corpus Christi 2022

Today is Corpus Christi Day!

Today, 16 June, is the feast of Corpus Christi, a celebration of the Catholic Church that commemorates the Eucharist. Corpus Christi, or the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, is celebrated 60 days after Easter Sunday.

In Spain, today is a public holiday in the five provinces of Castilla-La Mancha and in the cities of Granada and Sevilla. In the rest of Spain, although celebrations may also take place today, most cities and towns celebrate Corpus Christi at the weekend.

Our hotels are located in the provinces of Málaga (Benalmádena and Torremolinos), Almería (Roquetas de Mar) and Tarragona (Salou and l’Ampolla) and in all of them there will be celebrations this weekend. Below you will find the programs for this year’s Corpus Christi events.
