This is one of the most traditional, deep-rooted fiestas of the Canary Islands.
The San Benito Abad Pilgrimage is the most emblematic of its kind held in the Canaries. Its origins go back to a ceremony of thanks made to the saint by farmers for their summer harvest. Many people now take part in the event. They come wearing traditional dress, and there are plenty of folk songs and dancing, along with examples of regional gastronomy.
