Las Burras de Güímar
Las Burras is the most important event on the Carnival calendar in Güímar. Recovered by local youths over two decades ago, Las Burras is a mix of local legends and traditions.
It begins with the Burial of the Sardine, where the widows and peasants who gather in San Pedro square are met by donkeyish creatures.
Spiced up with astonishing special effects, the creative encounter symbolises the battle between good and evil. Hundreds of locals take part in this battle.
