Sunday pilgrimage in Adeje will see thousands follow the virgin’s statue to La Caleta

It might not be one’s thing, but it’s a sight to behold all the same. And for the Adeje faithful, walking the statue of the Virgin Mary along the old path from the top of Adeje town to La Caleta is the fulfillment of a promise made generations ago, as well as a modern opportunity to celebrate the coming together of the people of the town.

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.
