Corpus Christi Orotava doesn't take place any given time after Trinity Sunday. The town follows its own agenda as close as possible.

Also, celebrations start already way before that Sunday and last about one month.

They begin on May, 015, 2017 at Noon and end on June 25th. of 2017 at night.
However, the main day of the church procession over floral and sand art will be on Thursday June, 22, 2017.
Then, even some small bars that are normally closed will be open just for this one day.

Numerous activities play a part. We shall try to give you a good idea about those that are most interesting and popular with tourists.
