Corpus Christi

Religious in La Orotava

Celebrated with extravagance in La Orotava (the date changes annually, but it’s always in June), when an intricately designed, colourful floral carpet (made from petals, leaves and branches) is laid on the streets. In the Plaza de Ayuntamiento, a tapestry of biblical scenes is fashioned from El Teide coloured sands.
