Fiestas de La Luz 2015, Los Silos

 

September 8th each year is the Día Grande (Big Day) of the fiestas in honour of the Virgen de La Luz in Los Silos. Accodring to the programme, there will be a mass for pilgrims at 10am, Eucharist at 11:30am, with a procession to follow and another, Coso de Flores (floral procession) at 6pm.

What doesn't seem to be included now is the Ofrenda floral submarina (Underwater floral cffering) - to an icon of the Virgen de la Luz situated under water off the Los Slios coast. It still has to go down as one of the more unsual acts of fiestas in Tenerife, even by Tenerife standards!
 

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
