Our Lady of the Rosary in Luarca. Valdés

Our Lady of the Rosary in Luarca. Valdés

Luarca/L.luarca hosts the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, patron saint of sailors - it is said that she protected John of Austria and his ships in the battle of Lepanto - which has been celebrated in the town in the middle of summer since time immemorial.

This event has been declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest.

The Virgin is carried out on a platform along the quay, and then climbs onto the boat, which strictly speaking is her turn, and begins a walk along the sea - saleo - accompanied by the rest of the decorated boats. During the saleo, the Salve Marinera is sung and a floral offering is made in honour of all those who have died at sea.
