Fiestas of Santa María Magdalena in Cangas del Narcea
Cangas del Narcea (West of Asturias) (Cangas del Narcea)
Type
Festival of touristic interest in the Principality of Asturias
Dates
July 22nd
The ideal complement to the Virgen del Carmen

The Fiestas of Santa María Magdalena in Cangas del Narcea cannot be conceived without the Fiestas del Carmen, nor these without those of Santa María Magdalena. In fact, the Fiestas de la Magdalena are a prolongation of the Fiestas del Carmen, and it is precisely this new festive episode which makes the people of Cangas spend all the month of July living by and for the devotions and processions of its Virgin Marys.

The grand day of this fiesta coincides six days after the Fiesta del Carmen and this year it falls on July 22. That day there is a procession, Mass in the basilica, a launch of rocket fireworks in honour of the Virgin and, of course, a snack and an animated verbena (session of party activities).

These fiestas put the finishing touch to several weeks of uninterrupted fiesta and enjoyment in Cangas, which is filled to bursting with tourists, local people and the people of Cangas who now live elsewhere and have returned for the celebrations eager for family meetings, fireworks and devotion. Of course, all these fiestas involve numerous fun and cultural acts which take place throughout the month of July.
