San Roque Pilgrimage

This lively and popular festival has been taking place every 16 August ever since the 17th century. At one o'clock in the afternoon, the municipal band, herds of livestock, street musicians and paraders journey through the streets to lead the figure of San Roque to the chapel. At the same time, the fishermen in Garachico embark on their own ocean pilgrimage, taking the saint along the coastline on their boats. This celebration has been declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest.
