Corpus Christi

The celebration of Corpus Christi in Morella along with Valencia are the oldest in the Mediterranean area . Its origin dates from 1358 and still retains its broad content of biblical pictures. It is held on the Sunday following the Thursday of Corpus which marks the Catholic calendar. The day before, on Saturday is celebrated "the degolla", which stages the massacre of the Innocents. Child participation is massive, wearing a distinctive red and white dress, and carrying in their hands a wooden sword that "stains" of saffron and water. The children walk through the streets accompanied by a series of biblical characters. On Sunday afternoon we celebrate the General Procession.
