Romería de San Isidro in Tacoronte – Fiestas on Tenerife

It’s got to be almost impossible to come to Tenerife in June and not see a traditional fiesta of some sort. Who am I kidding – if you’re in the centre of PDLA, you’re never going to see one. Anywhere else, step outside any day of the week this month and you’re in danger of tripping over someone in traditional costume. Tacoronte’s fiestas of San Isidro have two highlights to look out for, the Baile de Magos (Country Dance) and the Romería. The old part of Tacoronte makes for an absolutely perfect backdrop for the ox drawn carts.

Location: Tacoronte

Dates: Baile de Magos, Friday 26th June at 22.00; Romería, Sunday 28th June from midday
