Guide to Romerías in Tenerife 2017

Guide to Romerías in Tenerife 2017

Romerías -- a kind of procession with folk dressed in traditional attire, accompanied by traditional singing and dancing - not to mention the free food and even freer flowing wine - in honour of a saint are one of the most colourful and fun ways to enjoy and immerse yourself in some Canarian culture. Many of these romerías have been celebrated for centuries, even if the "traditional" costumes are more recent inventions.

And every year there is an ample programme. Some of the below have, of course,  already passed this year (the list has only just become available), but I'm including them as it gives an indication for future years. This still doesn't include every single one in every town and village, many of which take place over the summer months, so watch out for them.
