People and Culture
One of Tenerife’s best resources is people. Tenerifians have always been cradled by this tranquil island which has made us humble, kind, sweet… This particular identity can be felt in each one of our festivals and cultural manifestations.
Our identity gains from the cosmopolitan influences that have influenced in every Canarian for centuries. Our culture is not only European, but Berber and Latin American-a perfect mix of all. This is what explains the diversity and richness that make our festivals and traditions unique. Here, traditions and social life play such an important role that we have the town with the highest number of festivals per year in Spain. More than eighty…
From January to December somewhere in Tenerife there is a social event that spreads identity and culture. These manifestations mix faith, tradition and a deep awareness of our people’s identity.
In Tenerife 100 Cultures we do not want to just show you this mind-blowing living culture, we want you to live it. We do not want you to attend our festivals as an outsider, but to be involved in them, participating, dressing up as one of us. Indeed, it would be a real pleasure for us that, at least for one day, you would be a part of our culture.
