Carmen’s Festivity

Ethnological heritage

In Corcubión, a historically seafaring town, a mass and a sea procession in honour of Virgen del Carmen are held on the 16th of July. It is said to be one of the oldest sea processions in Galicia.

All the sailors from the estuary arrived there with their boats decorated. During the procession, the sailors carried the Virgin to the port, where she was embarked to make the boat trip along the Corcubión estuary, also doing a blessing of the waters and a floral offering for all the shipwrecked.
