Tenerife is not only a destination famous for its sandy beaches and always sunny climate, but it is also an island rich in history, breathtaking landscapes and picturesque villages. A comprehensive tour of the island is ideal for those who want to fully immerse themselves in the diversity that Tenerife has to offer, visiting places such as Candelaria, Villa Orotava, Garachico, Teno Rural Park and the village of Masca.

Candelaria: The Spiritual Heart of Tenerife

The tour begins in Candelaria, a place of pilgrimage and one of the most important spiritual centers in the Canary Islands. Here, visitors can see the Basilica of Our Lady of Candelaria, which houses the venerated statue of the Black Madonna, patron saint of the Canary Islands. The basilica square offers an impressive view of the Atlantic, and the statues of the Guanches, the natives of the island, lined up along the square, tell the ancient history of Tenerife.

Villa Orotava: A Blast into the Past

Continuing north, the tour reaches Villa Orotava, famous for its magnificent colonial houses and well-kept gardens. Walking the cobbled streets of Orotava is like taking a trip back in time. Visits often include the Casa de los Balcones, a stunning example of Canarian architecture, with its intricate wooden balconies and an internal courtyard housing a small museum of local crafts.

Garachico: The Phoenix of the Canaries

Garachico offers a history of resilience, having been rebuilt after a devastating volcanic eruption in 1706 that nearly destroyed the town. Today, it is a fascinating place to explore, with its natural volcanic rock pools, the San Francisco Convent and the San Miguel Fort. A walk along its seafront allows you to enjoy the tranquility of this historic town.

Teno and Masca Rural Park: Natural Jewels

The tour continues towards Teno Rural Park, one of the most beautiful and remote places in Tenerife. Here, nature is unspoiled, with breathtaking views of the rocky coast and surrounding countryside. Another unmissable stop is the village of Masca, perched in the mountains, with its stone houses and narrow streets offering a unique experience of a bygone era.

Masca is often the starting point for treks that lead down a gorge to the coast, an adventure that rewards the most intrepid with spectacular views and direct contact with the island's wild nature.
