An isolated rural village in Tenerife
In the heart of the Teno Rural Park in the north-east of Tenerife and by way of a very winding road, you will find the hamlet of Teno Alto, a stronghold of the island’s rural traditions where silence reigns and where residents have adapted to their isolation over recent decades. Inhabitants are also delighted to welcome visitors, however, and are used to people making the journey to see their village.
A hamlet countryside village for ramblers
The relative isolation of Teno Alto has meant the preservation of rich ethnographic traditions, such as the use of clay ovens, or 'eras', stone structures for threshing wheat. The traditional rural houses with thick walls and red roofs are also typical. Teno Alto invites you to discover its landscape through its many trails and walkways, and you mustn’t leave without trying the wonderful local goats’ cheese. Many visitors find themselves captivated by the place and choose to stay overnight in one of the several rural houses, where they can breathe in the peaceful tranquillity of Teno.
