Description

Candelaria is a Catholic pilgrimage destination with the Basilica of Candelaria with its sculpture of the Virgin Mary (Virgin of Candelaria) and mural paintings. The image goes out in procession every February 2 (day of Candelaria) and August 15 (day of the Patron of Canaries).

Right by Plaza de la Patrona de Canarias stand the huge bronze statues of the nine Guanche "menceyes" (kings), created by Tenerife sculptor José Abad.

Religious or not, this is a great place to visit.
