Fiestas en honor a la Virgen del Carmen
Every mid-July, coastal towns throughout Tenerife celebrate their fiestas in honour of Our Lady of Mt Carmel. The main ones include Puerto de la Cruz, where thousands of people gather at the fishing harbour to greet the Virgin, whose throne is carried by the fishermen to one of the boats before taking to the water for the flotilla-led procession. Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Adeje and Punta del Hidalgo in La Laguna also mark this deeply-rooted tradition with popular fiestas.
