Virgen del Carmen – Tazacorte, La Palma

July 19, 2015

034A couple of days, several fishing boats in the Tazacorte marina have played extremely loud latino music and tested microphones. Today and in particular this evening we understood the reason why. Today is the local holiday of Virgen del Carmen, a religious festivity devoted to the safety of seamen. The celebrations included a lot of people diving in to the harbour water, a madonna (Carmen) carried from a nearby church to a fishing vessel, and as mentioned a lot of music. Attached is a video clip of the procession passing by our boat on their way out on the bay.

    Hello from Sjötorp!

    We remember well the last time we were here with you, Tina and the Husquvarna! Well, it’s still raining….

    The Virgin celebration sounds like a lot of fun.
