It is celebrated on Thursday, a festive day, when the streets will be decorated for the occasion and an altar will be estabilished at the Plaza de San Francisco with 2 large commemorative arches. Streets, houses and shop windows will be adorned with various altars, shawls and rosemary branches. It is one of the most important religious celebrations in Sevilla, of antique origins and devotion, that commemorates the Eucharist with representation of the authorities, clergy and different religious and civil institutions.
The day before the procession, the center of Sevilla becomes even more lively and you can visit the Cathedral to see the custody and different steps of the procession, and attend concerts in different places downtown. During the next 7 days you can admire one of the oldest and most peculiar traditions of the city: the Dance and song of the Six. We recommend walking the streets of the itinerary, especially Francos and Sierpes, to see the Altares and street decorations. There are usually concerts in different squares and streets of the city and you will hear the bells of the Giralda.
During the Mass of the Six, 3 dances wil be performed, the 1st directed to the Santísimo, another to the Archbishop and the 3rd to the Municipal Corporation. At the end of the last one the mayor gives them a traditional double gold as a gift and the procession begins its exit by the San Miguel Door of the Cathedral.
