The Festival of Corpus Christi, celebrated sixty days after Easter Sunday, although celebrated throughout Peru, is most spectacular in Cusco. The images of fifteen Saints and Virgins from different districts of the city are carried to the Cathedral to greet the Blessed Sacrament or Sacred Host representing the Body of Christ. On the main festival day, at around midday and after Mass, the procession of the Sacred Host (the wafer that has been consecrated during the Mass) takes place with thousands of worshippers and onlookers. The Sacred Host is housed in a solid gold, jewel-bedecked monstrance which is mounted on an ornate silver hand-borne carriage. This is followed by the procession of the images of the Saints and Virgins. Corpus Christi was officially instituted in Cusco by Virrey Toledo in 1572.
