|The Streets of Sitges|
The town of Sitges celebrates Corpus Chisti every year with style! Sections of the major streets are closed to traffic for at least 24 hours.
Then intricate templates are drawn on the road. Neighbors from each street gather into the small hours of morning, plucking the petals off Carnation flowers. These petals are then placed on the patterns on the road.
The transformation is amazing. It has to be seen to be believed .
The kids get a great kick out of following the giants up the street. The usual mayhem ensues as there is a fight to grab that one last flower petal!
Note, finding parking is almost impossible on this weekend. Also, you should book your accommodation well in advance as it is a favourite weekend for the Barcelona boys and girls to come out for the weekend!
From 6pm the Giants Gather at Cap de la Vila
From around 8pm, flowers arrive and volunteers start sketching designs on the streets. They will be working on these until late into the night. You will probably see them still working as you come home from the nightclubs.
The judges visit the various streets to award the 1st prize to the most innovative design.
From 8pm the procession makes its way through the town (on the flowers) from the Town Hall to the church.
Various other activities take place throughout the day. Check out the blog for the latest updates.Video Guide
Every year, different designs are drawn on the streets of Sitges.
The intricate designs take hours to complete... a true festival of flowers!
Yes...there are people underneath these giants controlling their movements as they dance through the streets of Sitges.Photo Gallery
