What is La Candelaria?

La Candelaria is a popular fiesta celebrated by Catholics, which celebrates the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, the Purification of the Virgin after childbirth and the Virgin of the Candelaria.

Who is the Virgin of the Candelaria?

The Virgin of the Candelaria or Our Lady of Candelaria is a Marian invocation of the Catholic religion.  This invocation originated in the 15th century in Tenerife, Spain.  It’s derived from a candle that refers to the holy light that leads to the good path, redemption, and faith in God.

When is Día de la Candelaria?

It takes place on February 2 and this is Candelaria Day.  Many times the fiesta is held on the nearest weekend to Día de la Candelaria or February 2nd.  In some places, it is celebrated over several days.

 

Where is the Fiesta de la Candelaria?

The fiesta takes place in the small fishing village of Lobres, located in the municipality of Salobreña.  It is just a few minutes east of Salobreña town center and slightly inland.  You may access from the A7 highway at exit 322, the first exit after going through the tunnel de Itrabo if you are heading east from Almuñécar.  Once you exit the highway, you should see signs leading you to the village of Lobres.  We’d recommend parking as you enter the village and just walk into the center.
