The Town Hall of the municipality of Torremolinos Malaga will ask the Board that the procession of the Virgin of Carmen Carihuela be declared a Festival of Tourist Interest of Andalusia. There is a yearly attendance of about 25,000 people who accompany the image during the processional journey. The traditional neighborhood of La Carihuela began to organize the festival in the 40’s of last century, although the tradition of honouring the Virgen del Carmen goes back even more.
