Corpus Catifes "Corpus carpets"
The streets of L'Ametlla de Mar
For many years in our village, 36 to be exact, the streets have been decorated with the traditional "Corpus Catifes". A tradition which year after year brings an increasingly number of visitors to enjoy this event. After several weeks picking flowers, the 5 groups of people from La Cala (Ametlla de Mar) who are responsible for laying the Carpets, get to work overnight on Saturday so that during the whole of Sunday people can visit. Traditionally, around 7 pm, when celebrating Corpus procession, the children who this year have made their First Communion walk over the carpets.
