Something special in La Oliva
Nov 2020 • Couples
Monday 9th November and we visited the Town of La Oliva in the northern region of the Island. No visit to La Oliva is complete without a visit to see this beautiful old Church. It is situated in the Square at the heart of the town and a short walk down the road to the historic Colonels’ House.

The Church was completed around 1708 and is one of the largest on the Island.

We entered the Church through one of double wooden carved doors at the front of the building. We walked down the central aisle, which is flanked by an aisle on either side, to the back of the Church.

Although the Church is not very large it does have 3 aisles, each with its own vaulted wooden beamed ceilings.

On the altar at the foot of the central aisle, there is a statue Virgen de la Candeleria surrounded large paintings of religious images.

While the central alar is impressive, the altar to the left of it is a more elaborate affair. It is dedicated to Virgen de los Dolores.

We thought that the pulpit with its canopy was beautiful, with the ornate wooden carvings and the paintings that adorned it.

There are a number of religious statues are dotted around and large framed paintings adorn the walls.

From the outside it is an old style Church with whitewashed walls, a red terracotta tiled roof and the dark volcanic stone bell tower, which is visible from afar.

the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria
Mar 2018
I, the Church of Our Lady of Candelaria La Oliva, Fuerteventura was Built in the early 18th Century and the tower is made of dark volcanic stone.

The church is quite small and has three naves. There are several paintings and sculptures by Juan de Miranda.

We stopped by for a quick 15/20 Min Look whilst on a road trip round the island.

Interesting interior
Feb 2018 • Couples
This church feels more like a barn inside than a classic catholic church. But it has a more homely feel in consequence. There are some beautiful features inside worth looking at.
