Culture.

Touring different places of the municipality allows contemplating the beautiful edifices constructed in Canary style. A visit to the Parochial Temple of San Marcos is a must, as well as other temples and oratoriums, such as El Socorro and the one of Los Dolores, known as San Ignacio, or the one of San Pedro de Alcántara, called Roma.

Tegueste is a municipality where native sports have a strong root, especially the Canary wrestling, Since the middle of the seventies, the dragging trials by a pair of oxen take place, which is very popular today.

Among the local celebrations, the most notable are the pilgrimages of San Marcos, on the last Sunday in April, where each of the neighbourhoods is represented by a chariot curiously worked over with traditional typical motifs. Also created are fabulous artistic murals, made up of grains, beans, chickpeas and millo (sorghum).

Good wine is always present, as it is in other celebrations, with its well deserved fame. Precisely a whole series of activities on wine (caring of the vineyards, grape harvest, etc..) are carried out together, with the neighbours helping each other and in this way becoming another reason for getting together and setting up wine stalls.
