They have the support of the National Institute of Culture (INAC) and the Tourism Authority of Panama.
The Festival begins this Saturday, June 15, 2019, it is the eve of the Holy Trinity and at noon the diablada of the Simón Bolívar Park leaves exploding rockets in its path, for that reason they are known as “devils encueta’os”.
Corpus Christi promotes the Body and Blood of Christ present in the Eucharist in honor of our creator. The origin of this festivity goes back to the European medieval period, before its arrival in America. Here nationals and tourists will meet to join this celebration.
