and surrounding

Candelaria is a spiritual centre of the Canarian archipelago. According to legend, the Black Mary was washed up in Candelaria leading to Christianity spreading to the natives of the valley.

Today Candelaria offers some very good restaurants and cafés around the main square and along the promenade in Punta Larga.  There are plenty of shops and supermarkets, a small marina, and beaches. It is not a typical tourist area but very Canarian and very traditional.

Candelaria is ideally located at the heart of the island. From here you are within easy reach of numerous attractions.

"Perfect place in Tenerife. In the middle of the Island, close to all atractions. Calm place 20 min walking to beautiful city Candelaria. 200 m to small shop in which you could find fresh bread and local specialites"

Konrad from Poland, 31/12/19

"Candelaria - It is a very good base from which to explore the island. At the same time it is the perfect location, if you want to stay away from the busy tourist areas in the South."

Jan and Maria from Germany, Nov. 2019
