    Fiestas

    Every village in Tenerife has a patron Saint, and thus there are almost 80 festivals a year on the Island. Each of these festivals last for several days, and it is easy to find one at any time of the year. On the 19th and 20th of January in Costa Adeje, there is the celebration of Saint Sebastian, with the carrying of the statue of the saint down to the sea in a procession, and with the traditional bathing of the horses.

    Romerías

    The romerías are the liveliest and most representative festivals of the Island. These festivals originated as pagan or religious rituals (generally to give thanks for the harvest) and take place on the streets. The participants wear traditional costumes, play the timple canario (a small stringed instrument), the guitar, the drums or the castanets, while dancing and singing between decorated carts and banquets of wine and local food.  In some places, the romerias are also an opportunity to practice ancient local sports, such as lucha canaria (Canarian wrestling).

    Semana Santa

    The Holy Week is the most important religious event on Tenerife. The processions and various religious events provide an extraordinary and compelling sight, which perfectly expresses the devotion of the faithful. Each municipality has different customs and celebrations. The Passion of Adeje is the most important in the south of the Island, and involves hundreds of citizens every year in a representation of the last days of Jesus Christ. The Holy Week is also an opportunity to try traditional dishes, such as sancocho or papas arrugadas, and desserts like torrijas or frangollo.
