If you are on your Balearic Islands holidays this weekend then Corona Holidays suggest that take advantage of the local festivities which will be going on over this weekend ...16-18 July.

This Festival pays tribute to the seafarers and is held mainly on the Sunday - 18 July.  The main event consists of a maritime procession and a floral offering at the seashore in memory of seamen.  Mass is then held in hour of the patron saint of seafarers - the Virgin of Carmen.
