Time to celebrate
Every June, the streets of La Orotava are transformed into huge gardens for the Corpus Christi celebrations.

Detailed carpets are also created with sand, with the biggest and most impressive being the 850m2 one in the square outside the town hall.
The Fiesta de San Juan celebrated in Puerto de la Cruz is another fantastic event to see.
