Fiestas del Buen Viaje - El Cotillo

Fresh jareas for the Fiesta del Buen Viaje in El Cotillo

This morning the traditional Calada was celebrated, with dozens of neighbors involved and at least a ton of fish to invite the attendees in the popular asadero next Thursday.

La Caleta de El Río, north of El Cotillo, welcomed this morning the continuation of a tradition that is lost in the memory of the generations of the town. Dozens of neighbors collaborating and hundreds as public, enjoyed since dawn with the show of La Calada.

The operation, which began at midnight yesterday, at full tide, was completed early in the morning with a considerable catch. While the tide picks up, fishermen and many volunteers are recovering and fencing the chinchorro, little by little, preventing it from becoming entangled in the rocks at the bottom, letting the small fish out, and always under the coordination of the pattern's barge.

The result of this ancestral operation today was more than thirty boxes of fish, mostly salemas, over a ton. And the task would not go ahead without everyone's collaboration. And of all, because they no longer participate only by removing the fish on land and fixing it later, but more and more women are thrown into the water to help with the chinchorro.

The most important thing, the neighbors themselves say, is that the fish is for the people. It is not commercialized, but rather the attendees are prepared and invited to the traditional asadero de jareas that will take place next Thursday, within the Fiestas of the Good Journey of El Cotillo. Although chinchorro is an art of restricted fishing today, this tradition is still maintained once a year.

The Holidays of the Good Journey continue

Until next August 25 the festivities continue in honor of Our Lady of the Good Journey of El Cotillo. The City Council of La Oliva, and the Cotillo Joven association coordinate to organize one of the most popular festivals in northern Fuerteventura.
