Decorated Fountains in Puerto de la Cruz

The one part of the Fiestas of San Juan in Puerto de la Cruz that was able to take place last year - so fingers crossed for this year - is the Chorros Enramados (Decorated Fountains) - similar to well dressing in England - which begins on the evening of 22 June each year, with the 23 June being the one and only day to view them. Immediately important when they were installed in the 19th Century, bringing indispensable water close to homes, as such, are celebrated.
