About the tour

The festivities of St. Peter, patron Saint of the fishermen, in the ancient village of Afurada, are the annual highlight of this devoted community of seafarers and sailors, a very humble community. Always on the following weekend of the the 29th June, day of St.Peter, there is open air mass and the procession, both on land and water. Even with the restrictions that this pandemic forces upon the community, the locals will do their best to keep tradition alive, respecting restrictions, and I'll be there to show it to you.
