In the context of the Big July Festival, the town of Puerto de la Cruz is paying tribute to Our Lady of El Carmen – a popular religious feast.
On 16 July, a statue of the Virgin Mary is carried by boat on a procession at sea as hundreds of people gather at the fishing pier to join the celebrations. They also engage in a variety of activities, including La Cucaña (a Canarian version of “Climbing the Greasy Pole”), dances, traditional food and children’s specials.
