Participate in the popular festivals of Formentera

If you want to experience the authentic spirit of the island of Formentera, do not miss two important dates: the festival of La Virgen del Carmen which takes place on July 16th and that of San Jaume on July 25th.

The first, patroness of sailors and fishermen, takes place in La Savina. Tradition has it that the boats leave the port on July 16 at seven in the evening accompanying the Virgin of Carmen. A religious rite and a dance will crown this moment. If you are in Formentera it is truly an experience not to be missed.

The feast of San Jaume instead takes place in the heart of San Francesc, the capital of the island. This is the classic popular festival in which regular holidaymakers also participate.
