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!
 

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.
