The Festa del Carme in L’Escala
Get your fill of traditional things during your holidays on the Costa Brava! With your family or your friends, head for L’Escala and acquaint yourself with the Festa del Carme. This maritime procession of the Virgin Carmen takes place on 16th July 2019, and every year draws thousands of followers in an atmosphere that combines reverence with festivities. During this day of pilgrimage, there's a full schedule awaiting you!
The Festa del Carme starts with the presentation of the carpet of salt. This is when the ceremony assumes its full meaning: the Virgin leaves the harbour and heads off towards la Platja, while the procession chases down to the church. To close the festival, all the participants get together around a table and eat delicious sardines in a supercharged atmosphere. So, can we count you in?
