Pagan, bestial, and mystical Witches’ Sabbath in Güímar



This Friday, 10th March, Las Burras de Güímar – a Witches’ Sabbath in Güímar takes place. "Las Burras de Güímar are the witches who disguised themselves as donkey mares (burras) to carry out acts of black magic in honour of their Lord, the Devil himself." This video, Las Burras 2015 Carnaval de Güímar, from a couple of years ago, has coverage of the event.  

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
