Romería de San Marcos Evangelista in Tegueste


This Sunday, 24th April, from 1pm, the Romería in Honor of San Marcos Evangelista (St. Mark the Evangelist) takes place in Tegueste.

This famous pilgrimage is one of the most important in the archipelago with the participation of 23 carts (in the form of boats), the Dance of the Flowers and a large number of bands and folk dancers from Tenerife and other islands. As every year thousands are expected to flock to witness this unique example of Canarian tradition.
