“Magical Candelaria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I actually went to see the candle-lit procession for "dia de Candelaria" It was very moving indeed, even though i am not a particularly religious in the conventional sense.. The Basilica was very impressive, and the village of Candelaria a very pleasant place to visit in general..

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Took the 102 bus to Santa Cruz, then boarded the 122 to the Basilica. Lovely day out, bus journey comfortable. 16.50 euros return altogether for both journeys for 2 people. Too much history to write about this place but take a trip if possible. Lovely little town for a day out, black sand on beach, will definitely visit again if we return to Tenerife.

“A nice church but not much else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

The church was nice but I don't think it was that special.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Some places in Tenerife can seem down at heel and a little tatty, but the town of Candelaria is a beautiful little place, and the Basilica which stands on the town square is particularly nice and well worth a look. The square itself stands by the sea and on the seaward side is a series of statues celebrating some of the early rulers of Tenerife. All in all this place is a superb day out, and as an added bonus there are some very nice shops and a marina.
