Santa Bárbara's Baskets and Bakery in Icod de Los Vinos

This tradition began almost 70 years ago to give thanks for good harvests. On the last Sunday in August, a number of decorated cars set off from El Calvario bearing baskets of fruit. They head towards La Palmita, where Santa Bárbara awaits.

A few yards away from the religious temple, the men carrying their baskets come to meet the suppliers, who are single women carrying huge baskets on their heads adorned with coloured ribbons. Inside, they are full of baked goods on sticks decorated with dozens of small figures. Once their journey ends, the baskets are placed on the façade of the church until the festivities come to a close.
