Castillo de San Miguel

Garachico

Or Saint Michael’s Castle, if you wish to Anglicise it, was built in 1575, to protect the town of Garachico against the island's frequent pirate attacks. Tonight, the Eve of Epiphany, the town will willingly allow the castle to be taken over by King Herod and his Roman troops for the evening, during the annual visit of the Three Kings.


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
