Fiesta Feeling

Fiesta Feeling

This weekend marks the start of the fiestas for San Antonio Abad (Anthony the Great, also known as Saint Anthony, Anthony the Abbot), held in various parts of the island, where livestock and pets are brought to town to be blessed. Tomorrow, Sunday, there should be such fiestas in Los Realejos. This picture was taken in Buenavista del Norte, who usually celebrate theirs the week after Los Silos.


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
