Today we celebrate a significant day on the Canary Islands. In 1983, 21 years ago,  the island group was granted the autonomous status from Spain back. Now, Dia de Canarias is a huge celebration of local culture. There are often concerts, demonstrations of local folk traditions, Canarian wrestling matches and plenty of other things going on to mark this important date in the islands’ history. Restaurants will usually get involved too, by promoting local dishes during the holiday. You can also experience the local traditions in and around Cotillo. Just go for a walk through our small village and discover traditional presentations as soon as you get back from your surf course.
