Culture.

It is a centre of interest with its long, sinuous and impeccable streets, that give a nice tour of the area.

Among the local celebrations, the most outstanding are the festivities of San Antonio de Papua, patron saint of Granadilla, on the second Sunday of June, where a massive pilgrimage takes place. In the area of Las Vegas, in the municipality’s highlands, the traditional and exotic Dance of the Poles (Danza de Varas) is celebrated, that is unlike any other of the island, where the dancers specially dress with determined colours, carrying decorated poles with curled papers, and dance to the rhythm of the repetitive music, weaving in and out of complicated figures.

The festivity of Our Lady of las Mercedes de Rojas, in El Médano, is the Sunday closest to September 24th, in which a curious maritime procession takes place.
