A lovely walk from hotel Punta del Ray along promenade arriving in the square at Candelaria. The Basilica dominates the square. Inside is beautiful, very ornate. Do visit the black Madonna just further along past the Basilica

Came here as part of a day coach trip. It's definitely worth an hour's stop to see this lovely, relatively modern but classically styled church, beautifully decorated internally and with its famous Virgin statue. We had enough time to wander down the path beside the...More

Beautiful church inside and outside surrounded by the bronze statues of the Guanche Kings set in a lovely square with lots of gift shops and restaurants. Definitely worth a visit to this peaceful and tranquil setting.

We walked from Las Caletillas to Candelaria, but the bus Company on Tenerife is called TITSA. They have their routes and timetables on the internet.
