Santa Maria del Carmelo, commonly known as Virgen del Carmen or Nuestra Señora del Carmen, is one of the various invocations of the Virgin Mary. Its name comes from Mount Carmel in Israel, in the city of Haifa, a name derived from the word Karmel or Al-Karem and which could be translated as “garden.”

In Spain, Virgen del Carmen, as well as in Puerto Rico and Costa Rica is considered the patron saint of the sea, also patron of the Spanish Armada. This festival is celebrated in July and this year there will be numerous events in the municipalities of Arguineguin and in the town of Puerto de Mogan. On July 16, there will be the traditional maritime procession: a group of fishermen with the virgin statue will sail from the port of Arguineguin to Puerto de Mogan.
