Holiday in Tegueste, Tenerife

Tegueste Vacation in the green North of Tenerife

Map Tenerife Tegueste is a small town in the north east of Tenerife between Bajamar and La Laguna. The town is part of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Tegueste has an excellent all-year-round climate and is a popular place in which to relax. Small houses with pretty gardens typify the peaceful village life in this predominantly agricultural area.

Tegueste is somewhat off the general tourist route, though enjoying a good reputation among the islanders for its wines and restaurants.

The traditional festival Romería de San Marcos, celebrated in honour of St Marcos, gloriously reaffirms island traditions and customs as thousands of Tenerfinos make the pilgrimage to Tegueste for one of the most important annual events on the island.

Aimed at promoting some age-old island traditions, the fiesta also features Canarian costumes, music and dance, with the celebrations starting on the Sunday closest to April 25.

Highlight of the nearly week-long celebration is a procession of wooden boats and ox carts, which are simply yet exquisitely decorated using traditional materials from the fields.

The festivities conclude with the burning of an effigy made of straw and old clothes and representing some public figure, which is subjected to rigorous abuse from the revellers.


Tegueste makes an ideal base from which to explore the Anaga mountains, with many footpaths and tracks setting out from the town and heading into the nearby forests of Las Mercedes.
