The feast day of San Roque is celebrated on 16th August.

The small chapel, located in the square of the same name, is also a place of reference and inspiration for the festivities and the guild of San Roque. It is one of the identifying symbols of Llanes, whose main feast day is celebrated on 16th August. Together with La Magdalena and La Guía, it is one of the religious guilds of Llanes.
