Corpus Christi Thursday. Less known, but important and solemn, this is the festivity on which the procession takes place – this time with Blessed Sacraments in its magnificent monstrance. The walk takes place downtown, on streets that are dressed with blood-red velvet cloaks. In the main access points of around twenty houses, chapels are placed – makeshift altars where the Blessed Sacraments stops for a moment of worship. Every one of these chapels is dressed by a guild of San Miguel: masons, cobblers, bakers, among others. And the arragement often evokes the Sacrament and the respective guild.
