Excursions and Places to visit

   

About

Tenerife has a multitude of excursions and places to visit to. We have listed a few below to help you decide what you would like to do when you are here.

Tacaronte

This picturesque village is located at the edge of an impressive steep coast is also famous for its excellent red wines.

Candelaria

Is a well known place for pilgrimages, where you will find the church consecrated to the island's patroness, Basílica de la Virgen de la Candelaria.

La Orotava

Is an extraordinarily nice town with manorial houses in the island's traditional style. Particularly well-known are the Casas de los Balcones, 17th. century buildings with  typical balconies of Canarian pine-wood. The best time to visit Orotava is during the celebrations of Corpus Christi, when the streets are covered with earths of six different colours which are found in the surroundings and ornamented with innumerable flowers.

Güimar

Is located in a valley, and is surrounded with breathtaking canyons and large plantations of bananas. Here we find the Ethnographic Park Pyramids of Güímar a complex of six step-pyramids which are oriented astronomically to the summer and winter solstices. The pyramids were discovered in 1987 and show great resemblance to those found in Egypt's ancient Mesopotamia, Peru and Mexico.

The origins of the pyramids are still uncertain and subject to discussion among archaeologists. In the opinion of the great explorer and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl, who was involved in the early researches, they may have been constructed by voyagers who sailed the Atlantic in ancient times and possibly may have established a link with the pre-Columbian civilizations of Central and South America.
