For a picturesque and rather atypical manifestation, tourists should head for the village of Taganana, in north Tenerife, and attend to Judas Fiesta. The event is held at the beginning of April, and it revolves around the burning of a statue rendering Judas the Iscariot. Several less orthodox significations have been added to the event in time, such as the belief that the act of burning the respective statue is able to relieve the villagers from their transgressions.
