Whilst the procession of El Gran Poder is parading through the more stately streets of Puerto de la Cruz, to the military rhythm of trumpets and drums, the El Carmen procession follows the streets of the fishermen. La Virgen del Carmen is taken out of the church of La Peña de Francia and carried in procession, along with San Telmo, in the midst of compliments and songs that the fishermen dedicate to her. Before the figures go on board a fishing vessel, a flock of doves are released. In the end there is a grand fireworks display on the fishing pier.The figures of the Saints are then taken back to their mother church.
