Explore the Pyramids of Güímar: A Journey Between Culture and Nature in Tenerife

In the heart of the enchanting island of Tenerife, stands the Pirámides de Güímar Ethnographic Park and Botanical Garden, an architectural and naturalistic jewel that enchants visitors with its thousand-year history and its scenic beauty.

Founded in 1998 by the famous Norwegian researcher Thor Heyerdahl, the Park was created with the aim of preserving the ancient pyramids from an urban development plan and offering visitors a unique experience discovering the culture and nature of the Canary Islands.

The Pyramids of Güímar constitute the centerpiece of the Park, representing an archaeological enigma shrouded in mystery. Surrounded by an aura of fascination and mysticism, these thousand-year-old structures continue to spark questions and reflections on their real purposes and meanings.

In addition to the pyramids, the Park offers a number of outdoor trails and specialized botanical gardens, allowing visitors to fully immerse themselves in the richness of the Canary Islands' flora and fauna. From the Poison Gardens to the Tropicarium, every corner of the Park reveals a new aspect of the island's extraordinary biodiversity.

Recognized internationally for its sustainable practices, the Park was awarded the “Best Overall Sustainable Tourism Practice 2021” award for the island of Tenerife. Thanks to its 30,000 square meters of accessible green areas, it offers a safe and sustainable environment to explore and appreciate the beauty of nature.

The Park is also a place of knowledge and discovery, with the Casa Chacona Museum and an Auditorium offering insights into Canarian history and culture. Through interactive exhibits and educational activities, visitors can fully immerse themselves in the island's fascinating world of archeology and ethnography.

Ultimately, a visit to the Pyramids of Güímar is much more than a simple walk in the park: it is an exciting journey to discover the natural and cultural wonders of Tenerife, an unforgettable experience that will leave a lasting impression on the mind and heart of every visitor.
