The Cabalgata (a mounted parade) or Convite is
a more recent development and symbolises an invitation from the
Capella de les Roques (the les Roques chapel) to the authorities
and people of the city to take part in the Corpus Christi procession.
The Corpus Christi procession itself is a kind of a living Bible,
involving many of the characters from both the Old and the New Testaments.
Los Gigantes (the giants) and the Cabezudos (Spanish carnival figures
with enormous heads) dance along behind the procession.
During the Corpus festival, there are performances of Entremeses
or Misteris (the Mysteries of Christ); Eucharistic plays, based
on 15th and 16th century writings, performed in the Valencian
Las Rocas (huge, decorated carriages and floats) allow the Misteris
to be performed at different points on the route. The carriages can
be seen at the Casa de las Rocas (close to the Torres Serranos).
