Romería de San Marcos in Tegueste

Postponed from it's usual final Sunday in April slot because of the General Elections in Spain, the Romería de San Marcos in Tegueste will take place on Sunday 5 May 2019. This is one of its most important events of the year, which this year celebrates its 51st edition. Despite the change of date, the council believe that this will not affect the influx of public, which is always crowded. In fact, some 80,000 people attended last year.

The pilgrimage will depart at 1:00 pm from the Plaza de San Marcos, after the celebration of the solemn Eucharist at 12 noon. The image of San Marcos will pass through the streets of La Audiencia, El Carmen, Nueva, Prebendado Pacheco, San Marcos square, El Pinar and La Placeta street, accompanied by 18 carts, four boats and a total of 29 Folklore groups. Tenerife public bus company, TITSA, are putting on extra services.
