Tenerife’s summer fiestas season is back with the return of the Virgen del Carmen

It's midsummer, and Tenerife is pretty much on holiday now from now and through July and August, and over these next two months or so throughout the island there is a series of fiestas honouring the Virgen del Carmen – the Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel who is the patron saint of fishermen. Perhaps the biggest celebration is in Puerto de la Cruz where tens of thousands will congregate on 15 July, whereas Los Cristianos' celebration is particularly popular in the south – this year's is 1-8 September. The same will take place, however, in most coastal towns and villages, albeit on a smaller scale.
