El Baño de las Cabras – The Bathing of the Goats

For anyone who’s still got any energy left after the Midsummer Eve partying, El Baño de las Cabras is one of the more bizarre little rituals. Goats descend on the harbour in Puerto de la Cruz from early morning for their annual seaside outing and dip in the water. It’s quite a sight and despite the animals’ protestations is said to be good for them. Make sure you’re there early otherwise you’ll miss it.
