Every year, the festival of the Corpus fills the streets of Calella with colours and perfumes, a tradition that even remains in many Catalan towns. It is said that its origin is in the decorations with herbs and flowers that were formerly made in Roman homes, when spring came.
Early in the morning of the festival day all the city starts making the flower carpets that entities, associations and neighbours have prepared weeks before. The designs are very varied, with different figures and drawings that are adorned with fresh petals, seeds and floral elements of all colours. An explosion of fragrance and imagination that is really beautiful to look at. Lots of visitors and many people from all over come to admire these spectacular creations made by neighbours, relatives and volunteers of all ages.
