Folklore, Music and Culture for Canaries Day

Castillo Negro (Black Castle)

The Canary Islands Government, with collaboration from individual island corporations is, for the first time this year, going to bring us a coordinated program of acts to celebrate Día de Canarias (Canaries Day) on May 30th.

During the day of the 30th, Canary Islanders (and visitors) will have the opportunity to participate in an ample program of events related to Día de Canarias, in their place of origin. Events will include tastings of the local gastronomy, folklore, music, arts & crafts, literature, cultural items and native sports. In Tenerife, the location for these events is at the Castillo Negro (Black Castle) in Santa Cruz. Events are programmed to begin at 16:00 hours. Various workshops, aimed at youngsters, will run until 20:00 hours.

The Castillo de San Juan is the best preserved on the island. It was constructed in the first half of the 17th Century and reconstructed in 1765. Popularly known as the Castillo Negro (Black Castle), because it is adjacent to La Caleta de Negros (Black Creek), the circular castellated building has volcanic masonry in tones of grey and is very close to the Parque Marítimo "César Manrique".

Also on May 30th, six local newspapers will be distributing a book, entitled, "Conocer Canarias: Mil preguntas y respuestas para disfrutar" (Get to know the Canary Islands: One thousand questions and answers to enjoy), which summarizes the attractions of the islands as well as their cultural heritage and history. The price of the book will be a token 1 euro.
