The most significant feature about Villanueva de la Fuente Corpus is the carpets made out of colored sawdust, which cover more than 1,800 meters of the streets in the municipality, forming artistic drawings. The Corpus procession will go over them, ruining them, but forming one of the most beautiful shows of this liturgy.
The residents prepare beforehand cardboard patterns with the shapes and figures that will form the carpet in different colors, the whole municipality joining forces, especially the residents in each street to make the most striking one.
