Day of Traditions in Chirche

Día de las Tradiciones in Chirche

Meanwhile the village of Chirche (Guía de Isora) is preparing to celebrate the 19th edition of their annual Día de las Tradiciones (Day of Traditions), usually held on the second Sunday in July each year, which aims to keep alive the traditions of past centuries.

On Sunday, July 14, the town will wake up early to receive the thousands of visitors that will arrive throughout the day. Free transport will be increased this year due to the high demand. Buses leave every half hour from 10.00 am in front of the Civil Guard Barracks in the town of Guía de Isora, the last bus returning from Chirche at 4.30 pm.

Twenty or so houses will open their doors and patios for roasting of wheat and coffee, kneading bread, making kites, basketwork ... Don't miss the teacher and the students in the school or the healer with his remedies. Various activities; a wedding, milking, and moving will be staged and, finally, at 2:00 pm the procession and a dance is planned.
