Celebration of Our Lady of Mount CarmelPopular festivals

Our Lady of Mount Carmel is the patron saint of seafarers and, in Catalonia, many coastal towns celebrate various traditional festivities around the date of her saint’s day. Barcelona joins in too, with the celebrations being concentrated in the quintessential fisherman’s neighborhood of La Barceloneta. The saint’s day is marked with a procession through the streets of an image of Virgin ending up at the quayside, where offerings are made. The fiesta concludes with a performance by the Choir of Barceloneta, a particularly emblematic part of this district.
