The Catholic tradition is strong in Spain, even in the fun-loving, hedonistic resort of Sitges. Corpus Christi is celebrated here, as in many other Spanish towns, with church services, religious processions and carpets of flowers. Here though, the flowers are particularly abundant, carpeting entire streets with colour and fragrance, and with patterns more fanciful and imaginative than most. Although it is a religious festival, it is also a popular one, attracting large festive crowds and generating a lively atmosphere. In the fun town of Sitges, it is a case of any excuse for a party.
