The feast of Corpus Christi has its historical origins in 1264, when it was instituted by Pope Urban IV, in the spirit of praise and commemorate the miracle of the consecration of the Eucharist. It is anthropologically akin to the cyclical evolution of the seasons, with the arrival of spring happens in the renewal of nature. The implementation of the feast of Corpus Christi in Canary became parallel to the conquest, so that all locations of the Canary Islands celebrate since the consecration of Forms. This festival is celebrated in La Orotava from its origins as a population, but began to take renown from the year 1847 when some members of the Monteverde family, under the inspiration of Leonor del Castillo, made ​​a carpet of flowers to celebrate the passage of the Corpus litter outside his private house. Carpets are one of the most representative artistic expressions of this fiesta. Carpets of flowers and volcanic sands that are made for the celebration of Corpus Christi, in its eighth day. Its origin dates back to 1847, being direct descendants of that carpet that Leonor del Castillo made ​​outside the House Monteverde. Our tour will take you to enjoy this magical day with a guide who will explain the traditional manufacture of carpets. Later, we will visit Puerto de La Cruz with some free time before our return to the south of the island. If you are lucky enough to visit Tenerife these days, not to be missed!

    Dear, the most of the people are from Belgium so many found it stupid that it was the last language that Peter speaks. He did it in 4 languages and maybe he had could asked of the other ones understands English it will be a lot faster. Than we stoped in Puerto de La Cruz and nobody understands why because only for 1 drink and then only left 2 hours for Corpus Christi what is was way to short. Best regards Peggy Belis

    The tour included Puerto De La Cruz, we had 1 hour 15 minutes there, by the time you get your bearings its not enough time to find your way round and get a coffee. La Orotava 2 hours 15 minutes. Again not enough time to see the flowers and sand carpets and get some lunch,despite dire warnings from the tour guide NOT to take sandwiches. We saw a fraction of what we were hoping to see as there was just not enough time. Needs a stop of at least 4 hours, this was extremely disappointing as seeing the flowers was the whole point of this trip. Tour guide quite rude and condescending, and kept making weird cat meowing noises. We did have a bonus stop in Candelaria, but even that was only 30 minutes and again not enough time to really do anything by the time you walk to the Basilica, why could we not be given an extra 30 minutes for La Orotava? that was the point of the trip and what we had paid for. If I ever took another trip with Atlantico I would want to be assured that it was not the same tour guide as he was actually very unpleasant.
