The Corpus Christi Festival

Famous across Ecuador, yet unknown among tourists

Literally translated as "The Body of Christ", the Corpus Christi Festival is a day in which Catholics celebrate the presence of the body and blood of Christ. Over time the festival has combined Spanish-Catholicism elements with Andean culture and it has become regarded as the most important celebration in the city of Pujili, Ecuador, that people come from all over the country to be involved.
