Candelaria, the Canary Islands’ symbol of sincere religious devotion, has an interesting air about it. Home to the archipelago’s well-loved patron saint, pilgrims, and Catholic devotees should not miss this town when in Tenerife. Its claim to fame as one of island’s religious focal points has a long history dating back to 1392. It was when the Guanches found the figure of the Virgin of Candelaria by the ocean. At present, the figure who is fondly known as the ‘Black Madonna’ because of its color, is housed in its solemn basilica. This beautiful seaside church is one the most photographed on the island. It also serves as a meeting point for thousands of pilgrims every year during the patron’s day.

Known also as a miniature continent, Gran Canaria has so much more to it than being the third largest of the Canary Islands. The perfect blend of pristine beaches, ever changing dramatic landscapes, and diverse cultural heritage make it a dream European destination. With various historical ports, it has been a major intersection where influences across the globe met and mingled. This rare cultural brew, which took centuries to create, has been a key feature in the island’s way of living. Its well-preserved pre-Hispanic and colonial past extend to architecture, gastronomy, and religious traditions. Ancient volcanic eruptions gave birth to geological formations and subtropical mountains in Gran Canaria. Since then, a large part of its central territory is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Coupled with a favorable climate, this makes the island a safe haven for a myriad of endemic flora and fauna in the Canaries.
