The Corpus Christi (in Latin "body of Christ") is a mobile festival in the calendar which is held on a Thursday, about the month of June. It was instituted by the Catholic Church in the thirteenth century to celebrate the Eucharist of the Last Supper and has since been held in many places in Europe with different traditions. In Blanes, Costa Brava south entrance, coinciding with the spring, some streets are decorated with flower petals that weekend, especially in the Raval neighborhood. Wonderful tapestry of flowers are created with original motives as its botanical gardens, its shield, its landscapes. It is an excellent example of ephemeral art which involves a good deal of the population, and that is followed by a catholic procession that starts in the church.
