  Black Madonna, Candelaria
by steventilly

Here's the repilca of the black Madonna that is kept in the cave. Perhaps to ensure that it is not washed away again there is now a small building (I suppose it's a church of sorts) covering the cave.
It was nice to visit Candelaria, not just to see the Black Madonna, which to be honest on its own is maybe not worth the trip, but the whole place was a quite pleasant, quiet and relaxed "real" Spanish town, far removed from the hullabaloo of Las Americas.
