Most people around the world are unfamiliar with the name of San Gines. Yet, this half legendary saint is held in great respect in Lanzarote, since he is the patron saint of the island. This is why the events organized on this occasion, that is, at the end of August, are said to be rather ostentatious, substantiating locals’ joy. The holiday is celebrated literally throughout Lanzarote, but Arrecife is where manifestations are at their best.
