Fiesta de La Rama 2019 | Dates & Location
Fiesta de La Rama is a popular fiesta held in Agaete situated in the North part of Gran Canaria.
The Fiesta de La Rama attracts thousands of people and is a fun and vibrant fiesta, one well worth attending.
This Gran Canaria festival celebrates the honour of the Virgin of Las Nieves.
If you like an authentic Spanish fiesta, you have found the ideal one.
Making way to the shrine of the Virgin of Las Nieves, processions dance through the streets of Agaete waving branches to and throw in the air above them.
A great sight at this fiesta is when they go to the sea and re enact the beating of the sea, a tradition going back many years.
After this pilgrimage of dance and fun, the Virgin of Las Nieves is taken to the church at Nuestra Senora where she will stay for around a fortnight.
If you like music, marching bands, lots of dancing in the streets, this fiesta is that and much more.
