Summer-time is “Fiesta”-time on the Canary Islands – Internships Canary Islands
“Romerías” are the traditional harvest festivals which take place on all of the Canary Islands – Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Gomera and El Hierro. They are characterized by tradition and folklore.
However, it is not only celebrated after the harvest, but especially on the day of the respective patron Saint of the local church.
With splendid processions and a combination of religious rites and folk music the statue of the patron Saint is carried, with dancing and singing through the streets. The Canarians are again dressed in their very traditional costumes and spread their very own charm.
