Discover San Miguel Celebration in Tuineje Every October

Mark your calendars for every October to partake in the San Miguel festivities in the captivating town of Tuineje, located on the island of Fuerteventura. This awe-inspiring commemoration is held in the memory of the victorious Battle of Tamasite of 1740, when the resilient locals, known as Majoreros, successfully drove British pirates from the tranquil shores of Fuerteventura.

The festivity’s three highlights are enthralling reenactments of historical moments. These include the thrilling portrayal of English pirates landing on the sun-kissed beach of Gran Tarajal and the epic depiction of the fierce battle fought on the mighty Montana de Tamasite. Moreover, a heart-touching pilgrimage made in honour of the revered saint, San Miguel Archangel, forms a crucial part of the celebratory events in Tuineje.

The festivities offer a delightful opportunity to travel back to the historical year of 1740 and experience the remarkable bravery of the Majoreros who defended their beautiful island against an English pirate invasion. This unique event is an unforgettable celebration of the victory and resilience of the inhabitants of Fuerteventura.
