The most established traditions and customs of Toledo reach their maximum expression during the holiday. For centuries, the narrow streets of the Historic Quarter have featured the religious festival of Corpus Christi, declared of International Tourist Interest, during which the city prepares its best shows.
The streets covered in awnings and carpets of thyme, rosemary and lavender, together with the flowers and tapestries on the facades of buildings, lead to the eye-catching processional cortège, culminating in the Monstrance by Enrique de Arfe, from the XVI Century. These days are an ideal time to visit the traditional patios, open to the public and decorated.
In spring, Holy Week is celebrated too, of National Tourist Interest, which shows the austerity of the streets of Toledo and the steps taken by its brothers in a spectacular nocturnal silent procession illuminated by candles.
