Hermano Pedro Pilgrimage, Walking in the Footsteps of a Saint

Each August tens of thousands of Canarios take to the trails to make their way to Tenerife’s east coast to honour the Virgen de Candelaria. But there’s more than one pilgrimage on the island.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
