Christmas on Tenerife – Santiago del Teide

There are a couple of nice little events taking place in Santiago del Teide, particularly in Los Gigantes.

The turning on of the lights of the ‘arbol de luz’ on the 5th at 8pm in Plaza Bouganvillea in Los Gigantes sounds lovely, especially as it’s followed by a gospel performance by the Rainbow Gospel Choir.

The same plaza is also the scene for the Christmas concert at 8pm on the 19th and for the big end of the year party from 11pm on the 31st December.

The Three Kings are busy bees in Santiago as their Gran Cabalgata de los Reyes Mago de Oriente takes place on January 5th at 5.30pm in Arguayo, 7pm in Tamaimo and then leaves Plaza Pública in Puerto Santiago for Los Gigantes at 8.30pm.

Poor old Santiago del Teide town has to wait till midday on the 6th January before the Three Kings turn up there.

See full agenda here.
