Los Realejos and its historical dedication to Tenerife culture.

Tenerife culture Los Realejos has priority in its northern district of the Orotava Valley with its more than 20 suburbs.

The municipality of Los Realejos hosts altogether more than 62 fiestas and festivals without counting Christmas holidays.

Some traditions were partly taken over from Guanche cults and were christianized.

That's may be where the custom of free food and drinks for all during thanksgiving Romerias comes from. Icod el Alto hamlet, for example, fried 700 kg of meat during its August celebrations in 2011 to give out free.

Culture of Tenerife is as much celebrated in Los Realejos as in Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz.

Tenerife Culture always played a major role in Los Realejos partly because of its most famous son called José Viera Y Clavijo. His birthday which dates back to 1732 is celebrated each year in December. A Statue Viera y Clavijo stands on the most historical court yard by the town's most venerable church.

By the way, the late cleric, historian, poet, writer, philosopher and historian also studied in La Laguna as well as in Paris. Learn more about Viera y Clavijo in the context of Tertulias at the Bohemian Club of Tenerife.
