Corpus Christi

Religious in Cuenca

This Catholic celebration is usually held on the ninth Thursday after Easter and often coincides with the indigenous celebration Inti Raymi on the June solstice. Carried out with the same fervor as other big Cuenca holidays, it spills into a weekend of processions and fireworks displays. Parque Calderón is transformed into an outdoor candy festival, with vendors selling traditional sweets.
