Casa de las Rocas - Museum of Corpus Christi in Valencia, Spain

The Corpus Christi fiesta is the third biggest spectacle after the Fallas and Easter in Valencia. As with the other two, if you miss it there is a museum which will almost transport you there. Although Corpus Christi is a world-wide celebration, Valencia has its unique features, so the museum is worth visiting as a cultural curiosity. The museum has all of the Rocas (tall ceremonial stage-carriages pulled by horses), costumes used in the traditional dances and processions (including some very strange ones) and the walls covered in photos and explanations of how all this stuff is used every year. Valencian Corpus is a unique cultural phenomenon and visiting this museum is definitely a part of the itinerary.
