The Island's mountain peaks were once busy with people crisscrossing Tenerife to exchange and barter goods. Today, these comings and goings are represented in what is known as the Crossing of the Peaks (or "El Paso de la Cumbre" in Spanish). Performing the show are locals and actors, dressed up in traditional attire and carrying the tools that countrymen would have used some forty or fifty years ago. The re-enactment takes place in late March and is a valuable way of rescuing local traditions.
