It has  become an annual pilgrimage route, between La Laguna and Candelaria, the pilgrims walking to pay homage to the Virgin of Candelaria, which can be seen in the Basilica in Candelaria.

The starting point is from the Church of La Concepción, The Church dates back to 1496, has gone through numerous renovations, it is listed as a Cultural (BIC) with a Historic Monument. It houses important sculptures by  Luján Pérez and many more important artefacts.

Starting from the Plaza de la Conception  next to the Church, take a small tour along Calle Obispo Rey Redaondo, where before you will find  the historic building of the General Captains built in 1624 the main feature being the porch which is made of Red Tufa and the Canarian style court yard.
