The charming square in Garachico - a place that you must visit while in Tenerife

As one of the most charming towns in Tenerife, Garachico celebrates its own carnival, usually in February or March.

This particular carnival distinguishes itself from other carnivals through its own version of the popular event "Burial of the sardine", which is celebrated here as Sansusino or San Susino. In Garachico the sardine is replaced by a scary doll and its name is reminiscent of the name of a fish found in the Azores archipelago, known popularly as a 'susino'.

There are events organized in various towns of the municipality on different days: Garachico, La Caleta and Las Cruces.
