Alcalá’s August Virgen de Candelaria fiesta, with the famous Toste Brothers fireworks

Apart from being the patron saint of Tenerife and of the town of Candelaria itself, the Virgen de Candelaria is also the patron saint of Alcalá on the west coast. Every August, therefore, on the final day of the town’s fiesta, there is a fireworks display that has become known as the place to see fireworks in south Tenerife. The fireworks are organized by the Los Realejos Toste brothers, who have put on the exhibition now for over 80 years.
