Museum of La Rama

The Museo de la Rama (Branch Museum) celebration represents the main event within the fiestas of Our Lady of Las Nieves Festivity in the town of Agaete. A celebration that over the years has become one of the largest events in the Canarian summer calendar. This is not just another festivity, for it has great symbolic meaning to all Grancanarians. It is just that meaning along with its historical and traditional features that led the authorities to declare it of National Tourist Interest in 1972.

The Museo de la Rama is a space where visitors can witness, understand, and enjoy the essence of the celebration. The different elements used for this special occasion are displayed here, from papagüevos to other ornamentations such as lamps, branches, etc.

The Museo de la Rama is the first museum devoted to a festivity in the Canary Islands. With the contemplated expansion of the adjacent building, it aims at becoming a regional exponent for the study and understanding of the rich variety of festivities within the Canary Islands and their cultural and social significance.
