Must see Corpus Christi Orotava Tenerife events 2018 and 2022

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

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

The ones for 2019 had started already by the end of May, at Noon. They would end on June 26  at night. By the way, you can see more of the latest art made of volcanic sands of 2017 by clicking the photo underneath.

However, the main day of the church procession over floral and sand art will be on Thursday June 27, 2019.
Then, even some small bars that are normally closed will be open just for this one day.
