Romería de El Socorro in Güímar & Fiestas de Nuestra Señora de la Luz in Los Silos

Plaza in Los Silos

The Romería del Socorro takes place each year in Güímar on the 7 and 8 September. On the seventh, the icon of the Nuestra Señora del Socorro is brought down from the Church of San Pedro in the town centre to the chapel of the Virgin on the beach of El Socorro. On the following day, the virgin is returned to the church of San Pedro.

Meanwhile, 8 September each year is the día grande (big day) of the Fiestas de Nuestra Señora de la Luz in Los Silos. These fiestas take place from late August, until mid-September, this year culminating on 16 September with the Octava de la Virgen.
