Masca

The most visited rural hamlet in Tenerife
If you want to discover rural Tenerife, as far away from the tourist resorts as you can get, a visit to the hamlet of Masca is a must. Situated in Teno, a part of Tenerife known for its unique, wild, natural beauty in the north-west of the island, Masca delights visitors with its beautifully maintained houses and its cobbled streets; perfect examples of Tenerife’s rural architecture. Many of the houses have been renovated as small hostels and hotels, where you can totally disconnect from the stress of the city and mellow out.
Ethnography, history and nature trails in Tenerife
Tourists who visit Masca are usually in search of something more than sun and sea. This hamlet offers craft shops, bars and restaurants and has been declared an Ethnographic Historic Place of Interest, which is reflected in the Masca Ethnographic Museum. Another of its attractions is the impressive display of ravines and sweeping hillsides; the hike down the Masca gorge is one of the most popular on the island.

- 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.).
