So, when I was in Sitges this weekend, there was an event going on and it was pretty spectacular!
They had been laying out/building “flower carpets” all over town! Yes, streets filled with flowers petals, grass and seeds in different patterns. I have never seen anything like it, but apparently it’s a Catholic tradition also done in other Spanish cities.
It’s called the Festival de Corpus, “Corpus Cristi”, body of Christ, and they call it “alfombras de flores” which means flower carpets. It’s celebrated each year 60 days after Easter.
Apart from the flower carpets, there was a “Fira de Corpus,” a fair with stands filled up with lovely artesan products of all kinds.
|Champagne o'clock, Vanisha? Always!|
|Chocolate lover? Then you need to try Coca de Chocolate, yum yum!!|
I love bumping into things like this, and how would I learn about "flower carpets" if not?
Have you ever seen a flower carpet?
