A walk through palm groves which look towards the sea
Located in Los Realejos, in the north of Tenerife, Rambla de Castro combines great natural richness of a protected space with evidence of farm work in the fields of the Canary Islands. This trek starts at sea level at the beach of Los Roques and ends in the Hacienda de Castro, where the visitor can recall the pirate attacks of past centuries, see for oneself the splendor of the Casona de Castro (Manor house) and in La Godejuela, look at the place where the first steam engine used to pump water was set up in Tenerife.
A fort against pirate attacks in the XVIII century
At two kilometres long and with hardly any incline, the Rambla de Castro route can be done in both directions. It’s a good idea to start at the Maritim hotel and finish at San Pedro’s viewpoint, where public transport can be used to get back to the starting point. This is an easy walk; the route combines cobbled paths, dirt track and traditional ways. Besides San Fernando’s fort, built in the XVIII century, Saint Peter’s hermitage, with its valuable Baroque wooden statue of the saint is worth visiting.
