RITUAL "MATAR A LA CULEBRA"
Mataculebra is an ancient ritual that came to the islands at the end of the 19th Century with Canarian emigrants who returned from Cuba, the origin of which dates back to the African slaves of the Caribbean island, with music, dance and theatrical representation.

EXCHANGE WITH THE CARNIVAL OF GERMANY
The interchange between Tenerife and Düsseldorf began in 1972 with the help of key figures in the recent history of the city's tourism development, such as Horst Morgenbrod, Eduardo Lobenstein or Gregorio Etner. The idea was to promote Puerto de la Cruz and Tenerife in the Rhine-Westphalia region, one of the most prosperous in Germany.

MASCARITA PONTE EL TACÓN
One of the icons of the Carnival of Puerto de la Cruz, where hundreds of daring participants compete, dressed as 'suggestive ladies', to reach the finish line in shoes with huge platforms, running through the cobbled streets of the municipality.
