Corpus Christi – Sitges Flower Festival

The Corpus Christi Festival is one of the prettiest events in Sitges. The streets of the town covered in murals made from flower petals as part of a long standing tradition.

  • Corpus Christi Sitges - Dates 2019

    The event takes place on Sunday June 23rd 2019

  • Look Out!

    On Saturday evening the preparations begin. Streets such as C.Bonaire and Santiago Rusinol often take more than 12 hours to complete their designs.

Sitges most beautiful event.

The town of Sitges celebrates Corpus Christi 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 .

Saturday Evening of Corpus

  • From 6pm the Giants Gather at Cap de la Vila
