This Thursday, 23 June 2022, is the Día de las Alfombras, the Day of the Corpus Christi Carpets in La Orotava. There are to be 35 flower carpets made in the streets of the town, but also the great tapestry in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, made with sand from the Teide National Park, and this year, also with ashes from the La Palma volcano

In the Program of the Fiestas (PDF) there is a list and plan of the route of the carpets.
