As part of its July Big Festival, Puerto de la Cruz is hosting the traditional event honouring Our Lady of El Carmen: Her Boat Voyage.
The event, drawing hundreds of onlookers, takes place at the fishing pier, where Our Lady of El Carmen is brought on Her float by fishermen and placed on a boat, ready to go on a procession at sea. On the same day, there is a religious event honouring the Virgin Mary and St Elmo. Then, the fishermen carry Their images to the fishing pier, where they are placed on a boat and taken along the coast in the midst of praise and acclamation. After the boat voyage, Our Lady of El Carmen is taken on a procession along the streets.
