Crosses and Fireworks in Los Realejos, Tenerife



Traca Dia de La Cruz, Los Realejos

The town and municipality of Los Realejos celebrates the Fiestas de las Cruces (Day of the Cross) - this year, Thursday 3 May 2019 - with a spectacular display of fireworks, declared of National Tourist Interest. The two main streets of the town, the streets of El Medio and Del Sol, rival for more than three hours to offer the best pyrotechnic show.

And in 2013, Los Realejos also celebrated with a Traca or Mascletà (daytime noisy fireworks, see above) like those that take place during Las Fallas in Valencia.
