Traditional celebration in honour of the patron saint Virgen del Carmen

A special highlight not to be missed when you are in Port Andratx in July is the traditional festival in tribute to the patron saint Virgen del Carmen, patron saint of fishermen, and the port of Andratx.

This festival takes place on 16 July. A diverse day and night programme extends over several days, consisting of traditional music, concerts, street festivals and fireworks. 

The statue of the Virgin is festively decorated and carried in a procession from the church to the port. From there the statue is taken to a ship and leads a fleet of boats. A fireworks display closes the day. The festivities include a spectacular horse show directly at the harbour promenade and a "devils' dance" late in the evening ("Correfoc").

The exact program will be published closer to the date and can be found on the website www.andratx.cat or www.visit-andratx.com.
