During the weekend of July 30 and 31, the Arona Golden Mile will become the epicenter of culture and spirituality in Spain, celebrating the XI Festival of India, which will end on Sunday afternoon with the Hindu Ratha Yatra commemoration, which is one of the most important in Spain, after those in Madrid and Barcelona.
The famous Procession of the Divinities will be celebrated along the Avenida de Las Américas, with great shows and color, accompanied by traditional dances.
Ratha Yatra is one of the most popular spiritual festivals in India, where it is celebrated in the city of Puri. It later began to be celebrated in the West, like is the case in Spain, where the most important celebrations take place in Madrid, Barcelona and Arona.
In Tenerife, the event takes place around the Golden Mile of Playa de las Américas, in front of the H10 Conquistador hotel.
The Ratha Yatra returns, in this way, to Arona, after the years of restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
