Virgen del Carmen, San Pedro del Pinatar

Another beautiful reason to visit San Predro del Pinatar, the pilgrimage of “la Virgen del Carmen”.

“La Virgen del Carmen” appeared again this Sunday to Mar Menor accompanied by thousands of followers, among them, of course, its faithful fishermen. The patroness of the sea descended again in volandas from the Plaza de la Constitución de San Pedro del Pinatar to the pier of Lo Pagán, to sail between ‘live’, salves marineras and gunpowder, in their traditional maritime pilgrimage. Numerous boats decorated with pennants and flowers awaited her arrival on the salty lagoon.

The festival, which dates back to the 18th century in the municipality, began at seven o’clock in the morning with a bullfight in the streets of San Pedro del Pinatar, followed an hour later by a large mass of campaign in the Plaza de la Constitución.

Before landing and on the occasion of the 125 anniversary, the Eagle Patrol has made a spectacular display of acrobatic flight in front of the beach of La Puntica.
