Verge del Carme Festival, Mallorca

Fiestas to honour the patron saint of fishermen
Featured in: Events · Updated


This is a fiesta for Mallorca's coastal villages. The celebration of the virgin starts with an evening mass procession with local people carrying a statue of the virgin, the patron of fishermen, to the port where the statue is taken aboard a boat that has been decorated for the fiesta. 

This boat is followed out to sea by a procession of similarly adorned fishing boats.

These processions can be seen in many of Majorca's ports including Cala Rajada, Port de Pollenca, Port de Soller, Cala Bona, Coll d'en Rebassa, Cala Figuera, Porto Cristo & Portcolom.
