This year's design for the Corpus Christi carpet in La Orotava

June does not have any Public Holidays, but there are some days where there will be closures of shops and offices at individual municipality level, which are:

The first of those on Thursday 10 June 2021, is for what would, under normal circumstances, be one of the month's biggest events, the Día de las Alfombras (Day of the Carpets) for Corpus Christi in La Orotava. Last year's had to be cancelled, but his year there will be a sand carpet made in the square in front of the Town Hall in La Orotava. The design, will be somewhat smaller than usual to leave space for two rugs made with flowers. This year again we will not see the carpeted streets full of people and no procession.
