Fiesta del Pino 2023 – Teror

Teror is celebrating ‘Fiestas del Pino’, in Honour of Nuestra Señora del Pino (Our Lady of the Pine), patron of the island of Gran Canaria between 25 August – 30 September 2023. The main day of festivities means road closures and parking restrictions in Teror. 


“Probably the biggest and most important of the religious festivals on Gran Canaria, these events essentially mark the end of summertime and celebrate the harvests as well as heralding a change in the winds bringing a more autumnal feel, in particular, to the many northern mountain towns which represent the post-colonial history of the island and its agricultural traditions.”


The festive program will take place from August 25, with the reading of the proclamation by the actress Lili Quintana, and will culminate at the end of September with the raising of the image of the Virgen del Pino to her dressing room, on September 24, and the Rally, on September 30.

As the festival coincides with a long bridge this year, Teror expects a greater influx of pilgrims to Teror, causing some 200,000 people to gather in Villa Mariana.


The pilgrimage, which will begin once the image of the Virgen del Pino appears at the doors of the basilica on September 7, at 16:00 will be presented by boys and girls from all the municipalities and all the islands. It will be led by the cart from the host municipality, Teror, followed by that of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, co-organizer of the Fiestas in honor of the Patron Saint of the Canarian Diocese, followed by those of La Aldea de San Nicolás and Mogán. Next, the carts from the municipalities of Firgas, San Mateo, Artenara, Santa María de Guía, Gáldar, Valleseco, Agaete, Aguimes, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Tejeda, Valsequillo, Telde, Santa Lucía de Tirajana, Arucas, San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Moya, Santa Brígida and Ingenio.
