Tenerife Fiestas in April 2016

Church of San Marcos, Icod de los Vinos, Tenerife

With Easter having been fairly early this year, April is a quiet month, fiesta-wise.

There are no public holidays in April and only one Municipal holiday on 25th April for the Festivity of San Marcos Evangelista in both Icod de los Vinos and Tegueste.

There will undoubtedly be Fiestas in Icod (programme yet to be confirmed) and the Romeria of San Marcos Evangelista takes place in Tegueste on the last Sunday in April, which this year is April 24th, while the population of Almáciga in the district of Anaga will celebrate fiestas for their patron, Virgen de Begoña, during the last week of April.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
