La Esperanza Pilgrimage

The entire town gets involved in an event that the locals look forward to all year, but so do other islanders who are fans of pilgrimages and events that evoke the purest of Canarian culture. The town's location, mid-way between the north and south of the Island, means that spectators and pilgrims from all over Tenerife can get there, making this is one of the most colourful pilgrimages with no shortage of traditional carts and livestock.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to get a close look at what the Island's most deeply-rooted pilgrimage festivities, by delving into the festive, bustling atmosphere and meeting the star guests: Canarian food and wine.
