Corpus Christi in Ponteareas


Description

This is the most important festivity in Ponteareas, in Pontevedra (Galicia), and commemorates the Corpus with a religious procession in which the streets are adorned with spectacular carpets of flowers. It takes place the Sunday after the day of Corpus Christi. The carpets of flowers are made by the local inhabitants of Ponteareas the night before the festivity. On Sunday the religious cortege parades through the decorated streets. The origins of this tradition go back to the early 20th century when floral carpets were laid to cover the potholes along the route of the religious procession.
