La Folía Review
San Vicente celebrates this event in late April (the name translates roughly as "folly," and the exact date depends not only on Easter but also on the high tide). Its main attraction is a magnificent maritime procession: the town's colorful fishing fleet accompanies the figure of La Virgen de la Barquera as she is transported in part by boat from her sanctuary outside town to the village church. There she's honored with folk dances and songs before being returned to the sanctuary for another year.
