10 Sacred & Religious Sites in Canary Islands That You Shouldn't Miss

October 8, 2021 Kaleigh Reichenbach

The sun-drenched Canary Islands lie close to North Africa and have an exotic flavor of their own. Hundreds of volcanoes, rolling sand dunes, rich forests and rugged cliffs dapple these seven Atlantic gems. Catch a ferry to Lanzarote. Ride a camel through volcanic Timanfaya National Park. Take on Tenerife, home of Mount Teide, Spain's tallest peak. Romp Grand Canary's beaches or hike La Gomera's Garajonay National Park. More adventures await on tiny El Hierro, verdant La Palma and peaceful Fuerteventura.

Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria

Reviewed By 104stevenp - Banning, United States

Beautiful basilica, albeit only about 80 years old, but the story and history of the statue and its interaction with the Guanches (the original indigenous people of the Canaries) is fascinating. A fine line of modern statues adorns the sea wall.
