FESTIVALS OF COSTA ADEJE

 

San Sebastián, co-patron saint of the municipality of Adeje together with the Virgen de la Encarnación and Santa Úrsula, celebrates his feast on January 20. At this time, it has become one of the celebrations that brings together the most people from all over the South of Tenerife. This is demonstrated by the large influx of people who meet at the mythical site of La Enramada, related in some way to agriculture and livestock in the region and the Island.

 

This is a very old party. It began in the early years of the 16th century in a place of worship prior to the Conquest and, over the years, it has been adapting to new customs. This festivity promotes a meeting in which adults and young people revive a tradition that goes beyond the religious, contributing to the strengthening of the spirit of coexistence and harmony among the inhabitants of the region.
