Los Dolores Pilgrimage and Festivities, 14/09/2013

This pilgrimage of Los Dolores is a cultural, traditional and religious event with deep roots in Lanzarote. Each year thousands of people participate in this pilgrimage and offer up to the Virgin of the Volcanoes.

Young people, children and adults go out at dawn from all parts of the island dressed in the typical clothing to congregate in Tinajo. Then, about 16.30 hours, the procession starts from the vicinity of “Campo de Lucha”, with carts carried by donkeys and camels, to the rhythm of popular songs and traditional instruments in an explosion of joy and sharing, then reaches the shrine of Mancha Blanca where the pilgrims make their offerings to the Virgin.
