By no means a fully comprehensive list, but fiestas celebrated in the municipality of Güímar, include the following events.

Romería de San Antonio Abad: January
Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima: May
Fiesta del gofio: 29 May
San Pedro Apóstol: June
Bajada de Nuestra Señora de El Socorro and Romería del Socorro 7-8 September, thought to be the oldest romería the Canary Islands



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.
