Something for the weekend: Romería of San Agustín in Arafo, the Hearts of Tejina and Crafts Fair in Vilaflor



On Saturday 25 August 2018, the Romería in honour of San Agustín takes place in Arafo.

Los Corazones de Tejina

(The Strange and Beautiful Hearts of Tejina) takes place each year on the Sunday closest to 24 August, in the case of Tejina Hearts 2018, that's 26 August. This is one of the most brightly coloured and striking traditions on the Island, which is why the residents of the town of Tejina are so keen to keep it alive. The three main neighbourhoods in the town (El Pico, Calle Arriba and Calle Abajo) bring out the hearts that they have been working on for days. Once raised, an entertaining ritual begins in which each neighbourhood tauntingly mocks the others' hearts. [The Hearts of Tejina]
