The Chirche Day of Traditions is an annual look at Tenerife village life as it used to be, and this year it’s on  Sunday 14 July. As usual, there will be a huge range of demonstrations and exhibitions in the village’s courtyards, houses, streets and square, including wheat toasting, openwork, needlework, dance with singing groups “parrandas”, ironing, coffee roasting, basketry, “bofio” grinding, healer, kneaded and baked bread, wine pressing, goat milking, threshing, everything, in fact, concerning traditional life in a typical Canarian village.


  1. Parking a car is very difficult, if not impossible in Chirche or Aripe. The Ayto put on a small fleet of free buses which run between the Guardia Civil in Calle el Campo in Guia de Isora and Chirche and return. You might have to wait a while at busy times. The village of Chirche is mostly situated up a pretty steep street, take your time walking and stay in the shade where possible. Refreshments are available next to the church.

      You don’t need to read the Spanish on the poster because the information is in English in the post!

  3. The Mirador de Chirche is usually closed on Saturdays. Maybe they will have a special opening for the Fiesta, I would check in advance if you are thinking of walking up to it from the village, it’s a heck of a climb.

  4. Chirche Day of traditions, this is a wonderful weekend, we have been to this event twice and enjoyed all of the variety of things to see and do. well worth a trip. If in Chirche try the Mirador for a meal it is a great restaurant at the top of the village
