Sunday, 17 February 2008

One Sunday whilst we were on holiday in Tenerife, my wife and I decided to take a trip over from our apartment in Costa del Silencio to El Medano, it’s a 10 minute drive particularly when the roads are quiet. As we neared the Red Mountain (just outside of El Medano) we decided to take a look at Brother Pedro’s Cave.

As we approached the area of Brother Pedro’s cave there was a small car park area in the dip in the road but this was busy so we carried on around the bend to where there is a larger parking area. A short walk brought us back to the entrance of the Cave area.

Brother Pedro’s Cave has over the years undergone a very sympathetic restoration with walkways and walls being constructed to protect this significant Tenerife religious and historical landmark.

As I walked around the caves and their surrounding area I have to say that I felt a great calmness, there was very little sound (even though we were technically in the Airport grounds) and it was a great place to visit and just reflect on the great holiday we had just had.

Being a Sunday, there were many visitors there offering quite prayer and reflection and I believe that there is still a mass said here at weekends.

If you find yourself in Tenerife and near to El Medano, you should take the time to visit Brother Pedro’s Cave and walk in the footsteps of a saint.

I agree totally with the writer about the feeling of peace and calm in this unique and very unusual area. It is easy to get to and the services are held in the afternoons on the last Sunday in the month.

Although my wife & I do not speak any Spanish we were welcomed at a service (held outside) and even joined in the hymns, although we do not know what we were singing!
