Puerto de la Cruz
Fiesta de San Andrés
(Festival of Saint Andrés)
November 29
 Puerto de la Cruz, La Orotava, Icod de los Vinos
Tenerife
So in honour of the patron saint St. Andres the good towns folk of Puerto de la Cruz think its appropriate to bang pots and pans; they call it the fiesta del cacharro y la castaña (pots and chestnuts). Whilst up the road in
 Icod de los Vinos youngsters engage in what looks like urban sledding as they slide down the town's steep streets on greased wooden boards.
Any excuse for a party and we're not complaining even if we haven't got a clue why they do it.
