Something else for the weekend: Romería de San Roque Garachico 2015


Garachico :: Romería de San Roque 2009

Even Lonely Planet know about this, about which they say:

"This is Garachico’s most important annual festival when the town fills with pilgrims (and partygoers) from throughout the island. San Roque (St Roch), the town’s patron, was credited with saving the town from the Black Death, which arrived in 1601."

The Romería; part of the festivities for the town's patron, which in 2011 attracted around 20,000, is held annually on 16th August (tomorrow, Sunday), with processions of faithful, oxen and carts starting from the Plaza Ramón Arocha (see map) at 2pm más o menos.
