All places have a history and the one of our archipelago is very particular. Many will wonder why we celebrate the Canary Islands Day and here is why…
This festival turns out to be special, not only for the historians but also for the inhabitants of the islands. And is that this holiday represents that longed desire of the Canaries to have greater representation and autonomy.
The 30 of May of 1983 was the first of the sessions of the Parliament of Canarias and was celebrated in Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife. This was the starting point to give greater voice and vote to the Canary Islands in the country.
Around this day there are endless activities to remember the devotion of the people for their islands, displaying flags and decorating balconies with flowers.
The children also become protagonists of the commemoration, dressing with their finest costumes of typical costumes. It is a wonderful day to be part of, and the atmosphere is wonderful.
