Dates for the diary
November is the month in which some of the more northern areas, including La Orotava, Icod de Los Vinos, Puerto de La Cruz and San Juan de La Rambla celebrate the Fiesta de San Andres. This wine festival is worth attending if you are staying in nearby Los Cristianos because it is exciting, unique and steeped in history.
The tradition dates back to when barrels of wine had to be rolled noisily through town to waiting boats in the harbours. Therefore, the celebration begins with the "dragging of the pots" in which children pull tin cans and other small objects through the streets. Then, young men join in, pulling much heavier and louder items, and they have gotten increasingly creative over the years. Next, the fiesta continues with the "dragging of the boards."
Brave citizens ride uncontrollable slides from the city's streets all the way to the harbour, hopefully not injuring themselves in the process. Finally, the day ends with wine tasting and free snacks.
November is also the time of year when many Spanish cultures celebrate the Day of the Dead. While the citizens of Los Cristianos observe this holiday, it is a rather quiet day consisting of visiting the graves of loved ones and making sure the graves are well groomed.
