Fiesta de la Virgen de la Antigua

Fiesta de la Virgen de la Antigua - this is a major celebration in Almuñécar as it commemorates her patron saint. The fiestas run for a week and culminate with a traditional procession of the Virgin onto a boat, a turn around the Peñon de San Cristóbal, and a tremendous music and fireworks display from the Castle and the beach. The traffic jams that occur at this time are testament to the popularity of this event. It has been celebrated consecutively since 1569.
