The Parish Matriz of St. Mark Evangelista located in the municipality of Icod de los Wines, the island of Tenerife is the most important religious construction of Icod and its region, dating its origins to the small hermitage, subsidiary of the Parish Matriz del Apostle Santiago de Los Realejos, which was raised in this same place, as a result of the appearance of the image of St. Mark Evangelista, which the tradition places on the beach that bears its name before the Spanish conquest, and which was elevated to the parish category in 1515, together with the San Pedro de Daute, in the neighbouring municipality of Garachico.
