Periplo Festival at Puerto de la Cruz -Teneriffa

As part of the “Periplo” Festival, we will welcome fascinating travellers in Puerto de la Cruz from 5th – 11th of October

Pe-ri-what? Periplo! Never heard of it? Well, we have to change this – Periplo is an international festival of travel and adventure literature. In other words, it is a great opportunity to meet – among other people – fascinating travel bloggers in Tenerife.

The festival will take place for the third consecutive year in Puerto de la Cruz, in northern Tenerife, from the 5th until the 11th October. The philosophy centers around directing attention to the amazing world of travel stories and informing persons through different formats – such as books, blogs, movies, notebooks – of the transformative energy that travels can have. Periplo therefore presents its unique perspective and structure as a pioneering event in Spain.

From Monday the 5th until Sunday the 11th of October, you will have the chance to witness numerous exhibitons, talks, interviews, workshops, book presentations and guided tours in different locations around Puerto de la Cruz. There will also be an exhibition of street art every day from 10:00-20:00h.
