Embarcación Virgen del Carmen Puerto de la Cruz 2016

The biggest events of July each year are the Fiestas del Carmen and none more so than the Embarkation - The Fishermen’s Fiesta - held in Puerto de la Cruz. Thousands of people gather on the fishing dock to watch the arrival of the Virgin as she is carried by fishermen onto one of the boats before setting sail on an maritime procession. You can get a pretty good idea of the scale of these fiestas from these aerial photos of the fiesta.

Fiestas and Romerías taking place this month include:

  • 9 July: (Second Sunday) Romería of San Benito Abad in La Laguna
  • 11 July: Fiestas del Gran Poder de Dios and the Virgen del Carmen (a.k.a. July Fiestas) in Puerto de la Cruz. The Fiestas run right through from 1st - 30th July, but the big day for the Embarkation takes place this year on Tuesday, 11th July. (Always the Tuesday before the 16th.)
  • 16 July: Fiestas del Carmen in Los Realejos and Santa Cruz de Tenerife
  • 25 July: Fiestas of Santa Ana in Candelaria
  • 25 July: Fiestas of Santiago Apóstol in Los Realejos
  • 25 July: Commemoration of the Battle of Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz 
  • 27 July: Fiestas of San Cristóbal in San Cristóbal de La Laguna




The Epic Feat of 25 July 25 July 1797 was a key date for the history of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the Island's capital city. This was the day when a major battle broke out against the troops of the British Admiral Horatio Nelson, who tried unsuccessfully to conquer Tenerife. Nowadays, this major feat is commemorated with a re-enactment of the naval battle performed by locals and actors."
