Tenerife Fiestas in June 2016

Corpus Christi Flower Carpet in La Orotava

June begins with one of the loveliest events of the whole year: the día de las alfombras (day of the carpets), when the streets of La Orotava will be filled with ephemeral floral carpets - and the heady aromas of petals and foliage - on the "octava" (eighth day) of Corpus Christi, which this year takes place on Thursday, 2nd June 2016.
