Procession of Virgen del Carmen
The maritime procession of Virgen del Carmen is a seafaring tradition that the locals of Malaga live with great devotion and fervour – from Nerja to Manilva – in many coastal towns. The statue is carried from the church to the port or the beach where it placed on a boat and accompanied by decorated pleasure boats and crowds of devotees.
There are outstanding the processions in Torre del Mar, at the beaches of the fishermen districts El Palo, Pedregalejo and Huelin in Malaga city and in the popular fishermen’s district Carihuela in Torremolinos, and as well in Estepona where the Virgin is the local Patron saint and where the maritime procession of the image occupies a privileged position. Furthermore, the procession is accompanied by fireworks that provide light and a lot of spectacle to this centuries-old tradition. Highly recommended.
When: 16 July
Where: In all coastal towns of Malaga
