Easter is a deeply-rooted religious feast in Tenerife. Many towns on the island organise Easter celebrations to enhance the religious tradition. This makes it the perfect time to visit Tenerife, getting familiar with its history and with its customs and traditions.

The coastal town of Puerto de la Cruz offers an interesting Easter programme, with activities organised by the association of religious brotherhoods. After the opening speech and Holy Mass, there are street processions where purple is the prevailing colour. The local music band adds the sound.

Easter celebrations in Puerto de la Cruz span a few weeks, highlighting the island’s vast cultural and religious heritage for locals and out-of-towners alike.
