This is a nice religious festival to see, unfortunately this festival it always seems to rain, and with the expected rain over the next few days, this year will be no different.
Machico is hosting this year’s traditional feast of the Lord of Miracles.
The solemnity implies the carrying out of two processions and, of course, the conditioning of some streets.
Thus, the Municipal Civil Protection of Machico issued a note which reads as follows:
“Procession of October 8
