Since 1676, the Bajada de La Virgen has been celebrated on the island of La Palma - Canary Islands.
The Virgin of Las Nieves, Patron Saint of the island of La Palma celebrates her festivities every five years, descending from the Royal Sanctuary to the centre of the capital.
These festivities attract a large number of Palmeros who live outside the island, who return to the island to accompany their patron saint on the route of just over two kilometres.
Since the month of June, public events have been held, the most popular of which are the raising of the flag, the lowering of the throne, the descent of the Virgin, the dance of the dwarves, the minuet, the dance of the dwarves, the dance of the dwarves and the dance of the dwarves.
Of the dwarfs, the minuet, the pandorgas, the acrobats, the float and the dialogue between the Virgin's castle and the boat.
