The Carpet Museum in La Orotava

corpus-christi-tenerife

One of the small and hidden attractions in Tenerife is the Carpet Museum in La Orotava or Museo De La Alfombra.

This small museum will give you a glimpse of the making of sand carpets and flower carpets during the celebration of Corpus Christi.

The main purpose of the museum when it was founded was to hold the carpets made each year during Corpus Christi.

Here you get to learn a bit about the making process and how much work it is involved in developing these "carpets".
