Tenerife Fiestas in October

columbus.pngOctober 12th is a Public Holiday throughout Spain for the Fiesta Nacional de España / Spanish National Holiday. It’s sometimes also referred to as Día de la Hispanidad and, of course, is better known as Columbus Day to our colonial cousins.

On and around October 25th, Buenavista del Norte celebrates it’s main annual fiestas, with an ample calendar of gala events, in honour of the town’s patron, Nuestra Señora de los Remedios (Our Lady of the Remedies), who is supposed to have miraculously seen off a plague of locusts that had devastated the area in 1659.

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
