Romería of San Benito Abad in La Laguna

Romería de San Benito Abad

On Sunday 14 July - always the second Sunday of the said month - the Romería Regional de San Benito Abad takes place in La Laguna. This is the only Romería that is denominated Regional and is declared of tourist interest, so you can imagine is one of the big ones and is considered as the most representative romeria of the Canary Islands. It is held in honor of St. Benedict of Nursia, the patron saint of farmers of Tenerife. Mass is celebrated with a floral offering, then the cattle are blessed and the pilgrimage leaves from around mid-day. The most striking aspect is the procession of the Saint accompanied by seven women dressed in the typical costume of each of the islands of the archipelago.
