Religious Festivals: Corpus Christi

Recommended Posts

Hi People

If you had the chance I would recommend all of you to visit La Villa de Los Santos town when the Corpus Christi festivals are being held.  It is a catholic religious festivals with a lot of cultural and folkloric expressions you may enjoy.  This festivities are held usually at the end of May and the first days of June.  It may be late for you to attend this years festivities but keep it in your agenda for next year.  You can plan a group tour and be ready with your cameras to take beautiful pictures an taste a feeling of an old spanish religion tradition.


The first thing you may find will be the beautiful decoration done with flowers and organic materials on the streets.

I feel so sad when some people says that Panama does not have culture.   We have a rich culture with a lot of manifestations from all the ethnic groups that makes this little country an interesting place to be.

You add so much value to CL. Thank you for your postings, and on so many different subjects.
