The feast of Our Lady of Mount Caramel is a celebration by fishermen. They pray for Her protection against the raging sea and for the safe return of their men. The highlight of this celebration is the procession, held along the Ria Formosa, in bedecked boats. The image comes out of the Igreja do Livramento (Church of Deliverance), where it is kept, and taken to the pier of Fuzeta, returning 48 hours later. To this promenade by sea joins another procession in land, held the next day, through the streets of the town, culminating with the blessing of the boats by the dock.
