The town of Béjar (Salamanca) celebrates the festival of Corpus Christi in its own distinctive way with the "Procession of the Moss Men".

The celebration of the Corpus Christi in Béjar combines the procession of the saint with the procession of the Moss Men. This tradition dates from the mid 12th century, and has its origins in the legend according to which the Christians reconquered the town by entering under cover of the night covered in moss so as not to be seen by the Muslim guard. This procession merged with the Corpus Christi procession in the 14th century.

During the Corpus Festival, a series of cultural events such as the Three Cultures Music Festival, drama, exhibitions, conferences and a balcony decorating contest.
