The festivities of Los Dolores in Lanzarote have Christian origins and in them, a pilgrimage takes place that crosses different corners of the island until arrival at the White Spot. Join up with your cheap rental car and enjoy the most famous parties in Lanzarote: The Dolores fiestas.
In White Spot, the Sanctuary of the Virgen de Los Dolores welcomes its devotees who arrive there on foot dressed in traditional clothes. It is easy to get to this meeting point using the cheap Lanzarote car rental in order to enjoy the incredible festivities that have been going on for three centuries.
The tradition of this festival comes from a series of miracles related to several volcanoes that erupted in the 18th and 19th centuries. Apparently, some fervent believers prayed to the Virgin that the river of lava would deviate and so it happened. That is why the Virgin of Sorrows is also known as the Virgin of the Volcanoes. Travel there in your cheap rental PaylessCar in Lanzarote to experience the music that is present throughout the entire pilgrimage and even while the offering is being made to the Virgin.
The erupting volcanoes devastated several villages, but miraculously the sanctuary remains intact and worth seeing. Also, on September 15, some religious acts took place, putting an end to the festivity. Thankfully, we were able to make an in-depth visit to the area due to the cheap rent-a-car service in Lanzarote that we hired.
The festivities of the Patron Saint of Lanzarote are celebrated for two weeks. First, the Insular Handicraft Fair takes place. In the second week, it's the 30th Nanino Díaz Cutillas Folkloric Festival, a very special musical gathering where different groups from Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma and Lanzarote play. It was not very difficult to learn all these acts and enjoy them. The people are very friendly and will show you how to get there with your cheap Lanzarote car rental.
These activities crowned this festive day, with the popular pilgrimage as the main attraction that took place on Saturday—a truly incredible experience to witness. Crowds of pilgrims arriving from different parts of the island walk to carry out the popular offering to their virgin and enjoy the traditional Romero dance.
The cheap rent-a-car service in Lanzarote is a great help when visiting the island. Saturday, in particular, is better to park your vehicle so you can mix with the rest of the walkers. Start from the Municipal Football Field Los Volcanes at 5 pm in the afternoon for two hours after the offering takes place with the emotional entrance of its pilgrims to the Plaza de Los Dolores.
