Tell you that the devotion to the Virgen de la Palma in Algeciras arises in the late seventeenth century, when a ship from Italy docked at the port of the city to take refuge from a strong storm. Every time the ship tried to leave, a new storm prevented it from doing so. They managed to transfer the cargo to another ship, but the same thing happened again until they decided to take out the image they were carrying in a crate. The waters calmed down and the people interpreted that the Virgin insisted on staying.
For more coincidences, the Virgin carried a palm in her hand and this fact was related to the conquest of Algeciras, taken in 1344 by Alfonso XI who consecrated the old mosque of the city as a Catholic church with the name of Virgen de la Palma because that day was Palm Sunday. Although the seafaring pilgrimage as it is known today is an initiative of the Federated Society of Sport Fishing El Mero that in 1975 decided to make a replica of the Virgen de la Palma and organize this procession.

Virgen de las nieves la palma
The image is submerged about 15 meters deep in the vicinity of the Bay of Algeciras and there remains under the control of divers who every month go down to visit her to clean her of algae and prevent the currents from displacing her from her refuge. Although she has never missed the appointment, there are occasions when the Virgin has not been found until the day of the procession.
The pilgrimage usually begins at dawn, when the decorated boats leave the port of Algeciras and enter the Bay so that the divers of the diving club El Estrecho rescue the image. A carving of 1.10 meters high, made by the sculptor Nacho Falgueras in marble and weighing about 100 kilos. The procession leaves the sea with it on their shoulders and carries it to the beach, where they arrive around half past one in the afternoon.
