Something for the weekend: Romería de San Marcos (Tegueste)


This Sunday, April 26th sees the XLVII (I make that the 47th) Romería de San Marcos, which as Jack Montgomery points out, is one of the biggest, yet it takes place "in a town that most visitors don't even know exists."

The fiestas for the town's co-patron began on Thursday and will run until May 9th, but the Romeria is the biggest event. Tegueste town hall's website has more information (in Spanish) and a PDF program to download.

It's certain that the local wine will be flowing - April is also wine month in Tegueste - during the procession of floats decorated with natural produce, carts, livestock, yoked oxen, dancers, etc., accompanied by crowds of people in traditional dress. Like all romeria's, it promises to be a fun, lively and colourful day out.
