Taganana

A hamlet in the heart of Anaga Rural Park
The hamlet of Taganana is the main population centre in the Anaga Rural Park. Situated in the southern part of this hugely important nature reserve, in the north-east of Tenerife, Taganana benefits from a beautiful surrounding landscape and gives a true flavour of Tenerife’s oldest villages. In fact, this was one of the first settlements founded by the Spanish conquerors. There are a number of items of great historical value, and two churches - Nuestra Señora de las Nieves and the Santa Catalina chapel – are listed buildings.
Cultural and historical jewels
The best way to reach Taganana is from the north via the Las Mercedes forest - one of the oldest in Europe - along the windy road that goes down between the ravines. In the centre of the village you’ll find the Nuestra Señora de las Nieves square, a quiet space where the locals take time out under the Indian laurel trees. The ethnographic value of Taganana has many facets, including the local stone presses and the famous Portugal neighbourhood, an authentic historical jewel.

Sustainability
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.).
