The omnipresent Teide is, without a doubt, one of the places you have to visit while in Tenerife, but the largest of the archipelago’s islands has so much more that you simply must see. A cosmopolitan, lively capital, historic villas with stone pavements, unique scenery, architectural treasures and even theme parks are all part of the huge cultural and tourist offer on this must-visit island.
The Teide National Park

Macizo de Anaga Biosphere Reserve
From the heights of the abrupt Anaga mountain range, the kingdom of the dense laurisilva, paths and trails descend the sides of steep ravines down to the coast. A rich natural landscape that co-exists in harmony with traditional Canary Islands hamlets, lending unique cultural wealth to this certified, protected space.
It is a truly gratifying experience to visit this stunning volcanic landscape, created over time through the process of erosion. From the old lighthouse, you can get the best views of astounding cliffs that stretch over the sea at dizzying heights. And if evening begins to fall, then you just can’t leave before seeing the beautiful sunset.
On top of one of the most famous ravines in Tenerife, we find this charming hamlet with traditional houses and cobbled streets built in the little space that is not abyss. A far-off, hidden spot that will definitely make an impression on you. It is, without a doubt, one of the jewels of the Teno Rural Park.

This town is the grand entrance to the Teide National Park. The historic quarter has rich heritage, with mansions and important religious buildings.
