The star traditional event this weekend, on Sunday 16 June 2019, is the Romería de San Isidro in Tacoronte, about which, sadly, I can find no further details online, but suffice to say it will be a day filled with the usual measures of music, dancing, food and wine.

Alexander von Humboldt in 1806

Alexander von Humboldt's visit to Tenerife in 1799

While in Germany, they're celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the birth of the Prussian polymath, geographer, naturalist and explorer, Alexander von Humboldt, there are several events to celebrate his visit to Tenerife 220 years ago in 1799.

On the way to the new world, Humboldt spent almost a week in Tenerife in June of 1799, climbing the Pico del Teide, with his expedition and a group of mules and, visiting places like La Orotava, La Laguna and Santa Cruz. He was particularly interested in the Jardín Botánico (Botanical Garden) in Puerto de la Cruz, which was created in 1788. A happy thought, as Humboldt observed, to introduce useful plants to Europe. He liked the island very much: on his descent through the valley of La Orotava he praised the beauty of the island and described Tenerife as "a splendid land, until now I have not found anything more majestic". Humboldt was also enthusiastic about the orchid garden Sitio Litre in Puerto de la Cruz, which was created more than 230 years ago.

  • Monday 17 June - Conference "La estancia de Humboldt en Tenerife" (Humboldt's stay in Tenerife) with Isidoro Sánchez, in the Casino of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. 
  • Wednesday 19 June - Various celebrations in honour of the 220th Anniversary of Humboldt's arrival in port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. 
  • Thursday 20 June - There will be a Humboldt event in the Jardín Bótanico, Puerto de la Cruz.
  • Sunday 23 June - A floral offering in honour of Humboldt in the Orchid Garden Sitio Litre.
