Like every year, on July 16 the festivity of the Virgen del Carmen is celebrated. An event in Port d’Andratx, which dresses up for this date, as it is the patron saint of the sea and the fishermen of this coastal town of Mallorca.
This seafaring procession is one of the most awaited events of the year in the municipality and attracts numerous devotees and tourists from all over Spain and the rest of the world.
The celebration begins with a solemn mass, and then, the Virgen del Carme is carried to the pier after passing through different streets of the port and finally being embarked to sail the waters of the bay of Andratx.
The boats that accompany their patron saint are decorated with flowers for the occasion. When the sun sets, these are illuminated, giving a great visual spectacle to the delight of all those gathered.
In addition to the traditional mass and the seafaring procession, a multitude of activities also take place throughout the weekend such as open-air dances, open-air dinners, popular dances and the equestrian show known as the Nit del Cavall (Horse Night).
