The Algorfa Fiesta (July every year)

This week long fiesta celebrates the patron saint of Algorfa, Virgen del Carmen, and her statue is moved from the town-centre church through the towns streets to L’Hermita Church on the outskirts of the town.  Days and nights of events are staged in the town square and a mile long procession of street dancers and a huge fireworks display announces the return of the Virgen del Carmen statue to the square’s church. Although a very Spanish ritual the event can only be admired for its celebration and sincerity. The Virgen del Carmen is home once more.
