Corpus Christi carpets in La Laguna
Many describe the Corpus Christi festival in La Laguna, the seat of the bishop of Tenerife, as a festival of flowers. Corpus Christi is celebrated in La Laguna this Sunday, June 23. After La Orotava, the carpets of La Laguna are the most famous on the island. A Sunday stroll is definitely worthwhile and those who wish can also attend the mass in the cathedral at 5pm and watch the subsequent procession. But even those who are not religious will find that this is an interesting destination for an excursion. The carpets adorning the pedestrian streets of La Laguna are mainly made of flowers, twigs, branches and other natural materials. A colourful spectacle and a tradition that can be traced back to 1907.
