Virgen del Carmen
The arrival at the Puerto Deportivo of Marbella of the Virgen del Carmen, which is submerged in the sea all year in a cave located in Torre del Cable to protect the sailors.
Adrián León, part of the Marina Marbella team tells us his experience:
“It is one of the most beautiful moments for sea lovers, we live this day with a great emotion, when we take the virgin out of the water to clean and venerate her in memory of all the sailors who are no longer among us and the moment of her return to the cave is an experience that goes beyond the festivity “*
