Fiestas in Triquivijate

Fuerteventura News

Triquivijate is a small village in Antigua, Fuerteventura. Each year, the friendly villagers organize a big feast to honor San Isidro Labrador (Isidore the Laborer) and Santa María de la Cabeza – also known as Maria Torribia – who is believed to have married Saint Isidore.

The highlight of the feast is when locals, wearing their traditional clothes, tour the village of Triquivijate by foot. In the mean time, warm snacks and cold drinks are being served from decorated vehicles that accompanies them. It looks a bit like a walking dinner served from mobile barbecue sets.
