Among the local celebrations, the most notable is the Pilgrimage of San Benito, on the first Sunday of July, where people from all of Tenerife come. The other great civilian and religious celebration is the Festivity of Christ, on the 14th of September, with a spectacular exhibition of artificial fireworks. Also Our Lady of la Esperanza on January 18th and the Patron Festivities on August 17th.

These are Festivities of great tradition and of special devotion are the Corpus Festivity and Holy Week.
