La Laguna and the entire region are orphaned for another year without their pilgrimages

The calendar of the Romerías (Pilgrimages) that should have been held in the municipality in 2021 include those of El Pico-Tejina, Valle de Guerra, Las Mercedes, Guamasa, Finca España and the Romería Regional de San Benito Abad.

However, once more the romerías in the municipality of La Laguna cannot be held during the months of May, June and July 2021, as these traditional pilgrimages, like those of the rest of the islands, are suspended for another year due to the pandemic.

Dates to keep in mind, [we hope] Romerías in San Cristóbal de La Laguna 2022
  • Romería del Pico en Tejina: May 7 (Saturday from 5:00 p.m.)
  • Romería de Valle de Guerra:  May 15, San Isidro Day
  • Romería Las Mercedes: May 29
  • Romería de Guamasa: June 5
  • Romería Regional de San Benito Abad: July 10 This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Modern Pilgrimage
Note: Except for Tejina, which is on a Saturday afternoon, all start at 12.00 on Sunday.
