The 25th of July, 1797 was a key day in the history of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The Spanish forces defeated the Royal Navy, led by Rear-Admiral Horatio Nelson, after the latter’s amphibious assault on the Spanish port city. Today, the feat is commemorated with a re-enactment of the naval battle, with roles played by professional performers and local residents alike.
The year 2022 marks the 225th anniversary of these historical events. It will be celebrated with the usual re-enactment, staged by the 25th of July 1797 Historical Events Cultural and Historical Association, whose main activity is to organise this annual celebration.
