Events on Tenerife – La Gran Majada (the Almond Fair)

This is one of those lovely island traditions which captures the imagination. La Gran Majada almond fair is a wonderful example of keeping important island traditions alive, in this case the collection and storing of almonds and dried fruits such as figs by the local children in the Plaza de San Pedro in Aripe, Guía de Isora,

It’s a great opportunity to experience part of a way of life which has existed for centuries and one which seems an eternity away from that of the tourist resorts a short distance away.
