Día de las Alfombras (Day of the Carpets) in La Orotava



The Día de las Alfombras (Day of the Carpets) for Corpus Christi in La Orotava this year falls on Thursday 7 June 2018. Go along to see - and more importantly smell - for yourself as the atmosphere on the day is tremendous, with families and groups coming together to make the carpets, as well as from the heady scents of all the flower petals, greenery and toasted plant material. It will also be a chance to see the massive sand carpet in front of the town hall before the procession walks over them and destroys them all.
