Sitges Corpus Christi
Sitges is filled with colour and the smell of flowers for the celebration of Maundy or Holy Thursday in spring. The highlight of the festival is on thursday before Easter with the creation of carpets by local neighbourhood groups using petals from carnations and other species of flowers. A jury awards a prize to the best carpets, all made with good taste and enormous dedication. The procession of the Santísimo Sacramento (Blessed Sacrament) then passes over these works of art adorning the main streets of Sitges. These days also host other activities such as the National Carnation Show, the Bonsai Exhibition and the competition for the best facade of balcony decorated with flowers, as well as parades of the town’s giants.
