Cestos y Bollos de Santa Bárbara 2022 (Baskets and Buns Procession)

Start date Saturday, 27 August 2022 - 15:00
End date Saturday, 27 August 2022
Place Icod de Los Vinos

It is an event that provokes great interest in Tenerife every year and is a ritual for the young women ready to marry. First, they go to La Palmita, where Santa Barbara is located. Then, near the religious monument, the men come with the baskets to meet the single women who hold large baskets decorated with coloured ribbons on their heads. Inside they carry buns with reeds full of miniature figurines.

Santa Barbara is thanked for the harvest and asked for the next one to be as good and that the town girls will find a good husband.

Once the outing is finished, the baskets are placed on the façade of the Church until the festivities end.

The day ends with a typical large street party.
