    Each year Sitges strives to excel its own previous record, improving and perfecting its beautiful, artistic and showy carpets made from flower petals.

    First prize for a carpet made by a group went to the Calle de San Pablo. Individual prize was awarded to Messrs. Alexandre and Mirabent of the Calle de San Bartholome. In addition to these, 32 other entries received awards.

    During the feast of Corpus Christi, Sitges not only gives proof of its eucharistic traditions but displays the artistic traits of its inhabitants in the charming flower carpets full of brilliant colouring and fragrance which cover the streets of the town.
