The Voyadores Festival is considered to be part of the week-long Peñafrancia Festival.The festival is named after the male devotees (voyadores) who accompany and carry the Virgin’s image in a procession called Traslacion for a Novena at the Metropolitan Cathedral.The image of the Lady of Peñafrancia is borne on the shoulders of her male devotees from her shrine, the Peñafrancia Basilica, to the Naga Cathedral where the image will stay for one week.


The famous Peñafrancia fluvial procession shall take place the following Sunday and marks the image’s voyage back to her shrine.
