After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Our Lady of Succour’s Procession is back in Güímar this year. It is the oldest religious festival in the Canary Islands – not just in Tenerife. Held on 7 September every year, the Procession goes from the Church of San Pedro in the Old Town to the Chapel of El Socorro on El Socorro (Chimisay) Beach.
In the afternoon, the congregation remembers the Marian apparition to the Guanches (indigenous inhabitants of the Canary Islands) on Chimisay Beach. On the following day, Our Lady of Succour is brought back to the Church of San Pedro.
