The local fiesta is in September, the feast day of San Blas, or at least the Sunday following. The rest of the year the statue of San Blas, patron saint of caves, amongst other things, resides in a tiny cave near the coast, but on this day he is paraded along the short promenade, along with the statues of Our Lady and Hermano Pedro (the only Canarian saint) from the church. When they reach the harbor a short mass is said, before the statues are loaded onto boats to be taken out to bless the waters for the coming year.
