Icod de los Vinos Old Town

Rural prosperity
Located in the north of the island of Tenerife, Icod de los Vinos is a town shaped by its relationship with the countryside and agriculture. Famous for its renowned wines in the 16th Century it also housed an important sugar mill. Partially destroyed by fire in 1798 the town was rebuilt with special care taken to maximise its green spaces. The old town is centred around the main church of San Marcos, the plazas of Lorenzo Cáceres and la Pila and the San Francisco convent.
Home to the famous thousand-year-old dragon tree
A stroll through Icod de los Vinos is not complete without a visit to the famous thousand-year-old dragon tree. A unique plant species of the Canary Islands and other islands in the Macaronesia region, the tree is actually estimated to be around eight hundred years old. An historic town with traditional architecture, Icod de los Vinos is a place where you can enjoy rabbit stew with Canarian potatoes, accompanied by a good, local red wine. For dessert, try traditional sponge cakes, pastries and rosquetes, a cross between a biscuit and a doughnut.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
