Something for the weekend: Romería of San Marcos in Tegueste



Sunday 29 April 2018 the Romería en Honor a San Marcos Evangelista takes place in Tegueste, as part of the Fiestas de San Marcos Evangelista en Tegueste.

This year sees the 50th edition of this popular romería, which has been celebrated in the town since 1969.

Headed up by the image of Saint Mark, there will be 23 carts and floats, accompanied by the four boats that are customary in the Tegueste celebrations, as well as the groups of musicians and dancers, including the Danza de las Flores (floral dance), which is the symbol of the traditions of the town, but is also so reminiscent of the Maypole dancing we know.
