Romería in Honor of the Virgen del Socorro


The Romería de la Bajada de la Virgen del Socorro takes place every year on 7th September. Declared to be of tourist interest, it is thought to be the oldest romería in the Canary Islands, as well as one of the most popular. This pilgrimage, held in Güímar, runs from the Church of San Pedro in the centre of the village to the hermitage of the Virgin in the Playa del Socorro. In the afternoon, the apparition of Nuestra Señora del Socorro to the Guanches, is commemorated on the beach of Chimisay. The following day, on 8th September, the image of the Virgin goes back to the village to return to the Church of San Pedro.
