Tejina and Tenerife

Tenerife is of volcanic origin and the largest of the seven Canary Islands. It is located around 300 kilometers from the African coast and about 1,300 kilometers from the Spanish mainland. It has an area of 2,034 square kilometers with the gigantic Pico del Teide rising up in the center to 3,718 meters, making it the highest point of Spain.

Tenerife is known throughout the world as the island of eternal spring. The traditional architecture of the Canary Islands takes its inspiration mainly from the traditional architecture of Andalusia and Portugal although it also has a strong personality of its own.


The small resort Tejina lies on the rocky coast in the northeast of Tenerife. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Anaga Mountains. The village and the surroundings are very rural and idyllic. The climate is extremely pleasant as temperatures do not sink below 17 degrees Celsius, even in winter.

A harvest festival is an important event and the people of Tejina have a rather unusual way to celebrate it. The festival is called ''The Hearts of Tejina'' and is held in August. Hearts are decorated with flowers, fruit, and cakes, and each heart is around 12 meters tall and weighs about 1,000 kilograms.

When the three main neighborhoods in the town bring out the hearts that they have been working on for a month, an entertaining ritual begins, in which each neighborhood mocks the others' hearts. The festivity dates back over a hundred years.
