The Legend of the Virgin of Candelaria.

The Cave Achbinico or San Blas Cave is a venerated Catholic holy place situated in Candelaria in the Tenerife Island.

Tolds immense historical and archaeological value, being the first place where the Guanches, the first inhabitants of Tenerife, worshipped the Virgin of Candelaria prior to the European invasion. Furthermore, it was the first Christian temple constructed in the Güímar Valley after the definitive union of the island to the Crown of Castile at the close of the 15th century.

The cave-hermitage has been included in the protected environment of the Well of Cultural Interest of the Sanctuary of Candelaria since 2005.

This area is located at the end of Paseo de San Blas, at the back of the Basilica de la Candelaria and under a coastal cliff of La Magdalena. The cavern, which is hidden because a brick building is connected to it, is long and deep, facing east. Its dimensions are 14 meters long and 6 meters wide, with a height between 3 and 6 meters.
