Romería San Roque in Garachico, Romería Barquera in Las Galletas, Arguayo Crafts Fair, La Guancha Crafts Fair 2019



The Romería in honour of San Roque in Garachico (or San Roque Pilgrimage) is one of those events which takes place on the same date each year, 16 August, irrespective of the day of the week and has done so since the 17th Century. At one o'clock in the afternoon, the municipal band, herds of livestock, street musicians and paraders journey through the streets to lead the figure of San Roque to the chapel. At the same time, the fishermen in Garachico embark on their own ocean pilgrimage, taking the saint along the coastline on their boats. This celebration has been declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest.
