The big weekend for the Fiestas del Pino, sees more than 200,000 people going to enjoy the Pilgrimage-Offering, the day of the Patroness and Las Marías.
The major fiesta held in Teror is the Fiesta in Honour of Nuestra Señora del Pino (Our Lady of the Pine), patron of the island of Gran Canaria. It dates back to the seventeenth century when the venerated statue of the Virgen del Pino was taken down to the island capital in order to add emphasis to their prayers for rain. By the eighteenth century a pilgrimages had started to become one of the most popular events, and still these days they remain as one of the main attractions of this traditional fiesta. The meeting of the faithful and the procession-goers on the road to Teror throughout the night are now a custom that draws thousands of visitors and residents from across the islands.
Monday, 9 September is also a bank holiday on Gran Canaria, so most non-tourism oriented shops will be closed to celebrate the revered patron saint of Gran Canaria, in honour of the Virgin of the Pine.
The first Sunday of October , this year on October 6 , takes place the other great celebration of the municipality of Valleseco. The festivities in honour of Our Lady of the Incarnation . It is also the Apple Festival in which the neighbors come on pilgrimage with their carts from all the neighborhoods dressed in their typical costumes to offer the Virgin the products of the land on the eve of the main day.
In 2011 this festival has been declared a Regional Tourist Interest Festival by the Government of the Canary Islands.
The apple is the symbol of Valleseco par excellence
