Something for the weekend: Romería de San Benito Abad 2015


This Sunday, 12th July, 2015 make a date for one of the biggest Romerías of the Tenerife calendar, that of San Benito Abad in La Laguna. The festivities begin at 12:00 mid-day and are followed at 16:00 by a Verbena (open air dancing). Starting from San Benito, the procession passes through many of the main streets and squares in the centre of the old city, returning back to San Benito where the verbena takes place in the Calle Marqués de Celada.
