The Virgen del Carmen festivity is one of the most important celebrations in Puerto de la Cruz, a charming coastal town located in the north of Tenerife, Spain. This festival, which takes place on July 16th, is dedicated to the patron saint of fishermen, the Virgen del Carmen. The festivity is deeply rooted in the town's maritime tradition and attracts thousands of locals and tourists alike every year. The celebrations include a solemn mass, a procession in which the statue of the Virgen del Carmen is carried through the streets and, most importantly, a maritime procession where the statue is taken out to sea on a fishing boat and accompanied by a flotilla of decorated vessels. This unique celebration is a wonderful way to experience the rich culture and traditions of Tenerife
