Enramades (Flower Carpets) in Sallent
On the eve of the Feast of Corpus Christi, Sallent is transformed. The streets are adorned with all sorts of festive elements in order to preside over the events of the Enramades (Flower carpets) Festival.
If you stroll through Sallent in the evening of the Wednesday before the Feast of Corpus Christi, you’ll find yourself in the thick of the action of the Enramades or Flower Carpets Festival. The locals decorate the streets with the creations they’ve been preparing for months. It’s a 600-year-old tradition which was originally held to welcome the Corpus Christi procession. Nowadays, while celebrating an ancient tradition, the festival is more secular in nature. If you can't make it on the Wednesday, don't worry; the street decorations are left in place for five days!
